WIR – Women In Korea

WIR Group

KGCCI’s "Women in Korea" (WIR/우리) group is a cross-industry, cross-national network of female executives under the umbrella of the KGCCI which wants to help Korean females in middle management to unlock their leadership potential and accelerate value-driven leadership with focus on gender, generations and geographics.

KGCCI WIR Group Mentorship Program

The WIR group that has been launched in 2017 is comprised of highly engaged senior executives with a passion to support emerging women leaders leverage their full potential and blaze their own trail in the workplace. In June 2018, WIR launched its mentorship program with the belief that this is a two-way exchange where all participants, regardless of professional background and job titles, gain from shared insight. WIR is aiming to collaborate on the pressing issues facing women leaders in today’s dynamic business environment and problem solve through the mentorship program.
