* [UNGC] Female Leadership in the Post-Covid19 Era│Lauren Gula(UN Global Compact, Senior Manager): As a lot of businesses have been taking a battering from Covid-19, they seek out for the path to build sustainable and resilient structure in order to recover, reconstruct and respond well. Female leadership is particularly noteworthy. Until now, judging from the gender ratio of the executives, Korea’s female leadership remained at a low level compared to the large economic scale.However, numerous researches have proven the fact that gender diversity within the board has positive implications for both financial and non-financial outcomes, which encouraged top economies including European Union countries and Japan to legitimate a gender quota.In January 2020, Korean government also obligated listed companies with assets of 2 trillion won or more to include at least one female executive in the board by amending Capital Market Law. Following the trend of gender diversity, the massive shift in the business environment is also anticipated. In this session, the experts will speak about the importance of female leadership in the post-Covid19 era and discuss merits and demerits of gender quotas. #leadership, #Covid19, #LaurenGula
