What does Dave ratio mean in business?

The number of women compared to people named Dave working at a company or in a work group.

The Dave ratio or Daverule started as a joke in Silicon Valley, as people realized that the number of women working in tech companies is so low, that if there are at least as many of them, as there are people called Dave, the company has achieved a balanced gender ratio.
