The World Economic Forum convened in Davos earlier this month to discuss top socio-economic priorities, political pledges to address sustainable development goals and key game changers that can still save our people from themselves.

This article gives a nice summary of the top 10 takeaways from the Davos dialogue. In my opinion, the three points that stood out the most were: 

1. 'Davos's great Achilles heel remains its aged, white, male membership' - with only 17% female representation on panels it is shocking that half the world's voices still remain relatively unheard.

2. 'We are going to need a new form of governmental and business leadership' - I feel this is gradually happening, especially with policy makes and private sector investors increasingly embracing the growing impact investing space that can help create a new form of more conscious capitalism.

3. 'The SDGs are starting to play their part' - Its interesting that sustainable development is still assuming a top down approach and is shaped by policy-makers and business leaders who have never seen, felt nor heard poverty, in a world where the richest 62 people own as much wealth as the bottom 50%!
