Women’s Inclusion Network: DE&I in Korean Technology Companies

Mary Woo, former general manager of Adobe Korea, discusses the challenges tech companies face while trying to diversify their talent pools.

Heidrick & Struggles’ Women’s Inclusion Network (WIN) helps our female colleagues at all levels across the world unlock their full potential for a successful journey in their careers. WIN Talk acts as a channel for opinion leaders from various countries to share their thoughts on diversity and inclusion.

In this video, Heidrick & Struggles’ Eunyoung Choi speaks to Mary Woo, the former general manager of Adobe Korea, about diversity and inclusion issues in Korea and Singapore, particularly childcare infrastructure, the gender pay gap, and the lack of women in management roles, especially in STEM, which Woo argues is partially due to the shortage of women students in STEM courses. Woo and Choi also discuss the challenges tech companies face in their efforts to enhance their diversity, how businesses can expand their talent pipeline, and how the next generation of young professionals can join and succeed in the tech industry.
