Issues of Girls and Women during the course of Davos 2010

the other day was the first big night of Davos gatherings. I started at the Clinton Global labor reception with President Clinton. He was in great form simply. He had just gotten off three redeye flights in a row and was full of tragic and useful stories around Haiti. Kathy Bushkin Calvin, CEO of the UN groundwork, And an amazing partner in trying out girls, And I ended up in a big the discussion with President Clinton about Haiti and I made sure to make the point that girls are on the front line of suffering and should be a priority through the disaster and rebuilding Haiti.

from there I was off to the Hotel Belvedere where the heads of state and CEOs stay. Stanford, Georgetown, Yale, affordability Waterhouse Coopers, Hubert Burda press, other great tales for reception after reception. I joined my Nike peers at the Burda Media party though a few had already wisely called it a night. Michael Elliott of Time intercontinental, Charlie Denson, lead designer of Nike, as well Eric Sprunk, VP of Product for Nike and I had a very animated gossip about privacy and technology. Charlie shared that he had been told by Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg that privacy is no longer a social norm. This is a big concept and we went and much more with just how far that line goes.

from there, I sensibly returned to my hotel, usually the Europa, Escorted by the a search engine team. an additional, They were very convincing about having a nightcap at the Piano Bar. The Piano Bar is the last stop of the nightusually going on until the day with conversations like the above that never seem to stop as another interesting Davos colleague joins in. Was not the response I was looking for. Wakeup make, I said 'Goodnight' and hit the sack for a few hours of sleep. newbie error. Three more parties and four more days to go.

Today was a date for gender issues. (that hurts) period: "closing in on Gender Parity: What is working, inspite of the early start, The room was active. It was a workspace session the spot that the group attacks an issue from all angles and comes up with a compelling action plan. We discussed how to close the gender gap through Board article, the ladies entrepreneurship, Mentorship, allocations, And the talent pipeline. The session had a number of great individuals, while the Honorable John Rwangombwa, Rwanda's Minister of economic (See photographic).

He was a group controversy leader for the morning and shared a pointed example from Rwanda to show that change can be impacted. The example was of a Rwanda's quota that at least 30% parliamentarians needed to be female. That law has ended in a major shift: not just is there no further need for a quota, But Rwanda is the first country in today's world with a parliament to have over 50% women. Saadia Zahidi, Head of ingredients for the WEF, Was praised for her leadership in creating the Global Gender Gap cheap chinese jerseys Report that a participant said has evolved the way her country, Israel, Is thinking tracking gender issues. We talked about a cheap nfl jerseys from china great program her organization is collaborating on with DFID and USAID that trains young Zimbabwean women hairdressers ages 1530 on how to teach the clientele about HIV, Condom utilization, And physical violence. What an excellent way to turn a captive audience conversation into a life saver.

Next had been the Goldman Sachs 10,000 women lunch. It was a remarkable, Intimate group of girl and women champs. We reflected on how the WEF's Global Gender Gap Report was a key factor in shifting the issues of girls and women into the cost-effective sphere. Dina Powell and the team at Goldman have really made phenomenal progress in such a short period. Dina made sure everyone was able to talk about their work and emphasize the need for all of us complementing each other's work.

following that, I got stuck in specific traffic in the one lane, a proven way, Circle road michael kors factory outlet that all cars at Davos have to use. what's promising was that I was china wholesale jerseys stuck with Nike Foundation partner Bruce McNamer, chief executive officer of Technoserve. We mused on the progress the issues of girls have made on the public and private agenda here and the potency of our work together.

to conclude, The big thoughts I took away from the day: 2010 appears to be kicking off as the year of girls and women. This was the first time in my seven years of coming to Davos that I've had a day of dealing with the issues of girls and women at practically every event. I don't remember there being any opportunity or reference to the issues of girls and women the first time I was here.

in all honesty, I am going to take an hour catnap now and then it's off to the Forbes 100 most powerful Women gathering, The un Foundation and Roll Back Malaria, The China CCTV China event, and even more. stay tuned for more.
