Here’s How To Have A Panel About Women At Davos

It’s important to get the optics right – make sure you follow these steps for a super diverse panel!

So you want to hold a panel about lady business people in Davos during the World Economic Forum.

Good for you!

1. The first step is to come up with a really good hashtag, like #WhenWomenThrive.

Use a double hashtag to give your panel double strength!

2. Next: Have a lady moderator on your lady panel!

Ladies make the best lady panel moderators.

3. Now, it is very important to have a diverse panel. So make sure you have a Man With Brown Hair.

Men With Brown Hair are essential to your business and you don’t want them to feel unappreciated.

4. Next, make sure you have a representative from the community of Edgy CEOs Who Wear All Black.

This shows that you care about lots of different perspectives.

5. The next step is to find a Man With Glasses to participate on your Lady Panel.

Men With Glasses have to overcome a lot of adversity to make it in the business world, so they have a lot to teach us.

6. PANEL HACK: Have the Man With Glasses also represent the community of Men Whose Ties Stick Out The Bottom Of Their Jackets.

Two diversity birds with one stone!

7. Next step, don’t forget to include a Man Who Parts His Hair On The Left.

You definitely want to avoid offending Men Who Part Their Hair On The Left on social media.

8. Now, everyone knows that CEOs are an extremely diverse bunch. For example, notice the different ways they hold their hands.

These four men represent all of major Things People Do With Their Hands While Sitting Down communities.

9. Next step – and this is a tricky one – see if you can get someone who appears to be a woman to attend your diverse panel.

Bonus points if she’s thriving.

10. And that’s it! You’ve got everybody!

CEOs are such a diverse bunch.

Congratulations! Your panel on lady business is a success!

See you next time, Davos!

Standard #Davos: female moderator, 4 male CEO panelists. Here’s one on women’s equality, srsly. https://t.co/pF9vny7qSs
