Educational Opportunities for Developing Korean Women Leaders
The number of women students entering higher education has continuously increased, and the role of gender has changed in Korea. The criticality of women’s leadership in Korea has been noted with an increased number of women college graduates and women in the workforce; however, managerial advancements for women still face limitations, as witnessed by Korea being ranked as a country with the lowest rate of women managers among the OECD countries. To identify how Korean women can face a better and more equitable future in leadership positions, Chap. 6 reviews the current status of educational opportunities available for future women leaders in Korea. Through a review of school-based and additional education, light is shed on the role of education in fostering women leadership and transforming Korean society.
