Sheryl Sandberg believes that two countries run by women will never go to war. With a bevy of issues, including terrorism and human displacement, facing governments and businesses this year, more women should be included in decision-making processes, the Facebook chief operating officer said on Friday.
"Let's get some women to the table," Sandberg told CNBC at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
Sandberg and Melinda Gates, co-founder of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, touched on topics from disease and poverty to technology and New Year's resolutions in a wide-ranging interview on Friday.
Gates discussed the foundation's efforts to improve conditions in developing areas, where she "[goes] in as an anonymous woman from the West in khakis and a T-shirt" to listen to residents. Innovations deployed to fight poverty will yield big dividends in the near future, Gates said.
