Women in Business in South Korea

By Western standards, the role of women in society is distinctly inferior to that of men.

It is rare for women to succeed in business in Korea and most women work as secretaries or in poorly paid assembly line positions. It is generally expected that women will leave work on getting married or having children.

Although foreign women will be accepted and possibly expected as part of a visiting delegation it could be frustrating when senior female team members’ views are ignored and younger, less senior male colleagues are paid both deference and respect. Be prepared for this situation and plan your strategy accordingly.
