Korean Women's International Network Mentoring Event


Last Sunday, I attended a mentoring event hosted by the Korean Women's International Network (KOWIN) at the Korean Ambassador’s residence in DC.

Arriving at the Korean Embassy complex to participate in the Women's Mentoring event hosted by the Korean Women's International Network.

KOWIN was established in 2001 as the Government of the Republic of Korea launched a new Ministry of Gender Equality and Family with the aim of planning public policy for the benefit of women, promoting their social status and rights and developing human resources among women.

At the event, Annette Lee, Miss Teen Korea International, who so kindly invited me to attend, and I greeted mentors and mentees. The attendees ranged from students and young adults to established “experts” in various fields.

The keynote speaker, Dr. Sue Terry, a visiting Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations with expertise in Korean affairs – a very important expertise to have at this moment in international affairs – gave an inspirational speech about creating your own opportunities and the power that women have today to create their own success.
