Subject: “Female leadership in a Globalized World”

For: 63 member organizations of the Korean National Council of Women and 100 of Korea’s Women leaders

Purpose of Workshop:

The 21st century is in desperate need of financial firepower that can support a women’s delicate sensitivity, respect for individuality, and creativity as well as soft power the ability to avoid confrontation and seek a win through tolerance.

In today’s world, female leadership is taking the world by storm. For example, even in South Korea, where the overall status of women is relatively low compared to its superior economic and technological advancements, the country’s first female President was elected. Furthermore, more and more prominent women leaders are rapidly taking charge and becoming prominent figures in both businesses and society. However, the percentage of women in executive decision-making process poisons still remains significantly low. For example, the percentage of Korean female lawmakers remains at 15.7% (105th out f 190 countries), of the 100 listed companies the female executive percentage remains at 1.7%, and in public institutions the percentage of women is a staggering 8.8%. This undermines the realization of gender equality in South Korea and stands as the largest obstacle.

In light of this problem, the 2013 Korean National Council of Women’s Women Leaders Workshop gathers women leaders from across the country to focus on “Women’s Leadership in the Era of Globalization.” The workshop will center on analyzing the particular requirements and qualities necessary for a woman leader in our century and will discuss methods necessary to improving and strengthening the representation and social participation of women.

The 2013 “Korean National Council of Women’s Women Leaders Workshop” will be a significant event that gathers women leaders who have been nationally active in all areas together in an event that will maximize interactions, build networks, and discuss topics that center on the advancement of females and the realization of gender equality.
