Korea Original Women's Research Cooperative
Who We Are
Korea Original Women's Research Cooperative (KOWORC) is a cooperative composed primarily of women with scientific and technical backgrounds and advanced academic degrees founded in 2014. Using the model of a research cooperative, we are focused on projects that lead to the creation of jobs and the development of professional competencies for women by providing relevant education and information to our clients who are often governmental agencies in Korea. Our goal is to expand the opportunity for work for women who have lost their careers.
Our mission is to contribute to developing a favorable atmosphere in Korean society for women with advanced academic degrees and to help them continue developing their careers by reincorporating them into the job market.
Currently women who have lost their careers due to marriage, childbirth and child-rearing are less likely to be reemployed. From society’s and industry’s perspective, it is a major loss that skilled women, especially those with advanced academic degrees, cannot easily be reincorporated into the workforce and develop their careers. We believe that given the opportunity those women have a big potential to positively impact society.
