There was the seven-member all-male panel discussion on energy and climate at the European Commission in February 2016. There was the seven-member all-male panel on counterterrorism at the U.N. in March 2016. And then there was the panel on infrastructure at the World Bank in April: 15 men and one lone woman, in a red blazer, serving as the moderator. Why are women so woefully underrepresented? The Panel Pledge is a practical way to improve gender balance in important debates and public discussion, which is good for women, good for men and good for business.
