Ewha Members Demonstrate Their Competence in State Examinations
Ewha Members Demonstrate Their Competence in State Examinations Ewha Members Demonstrate Their Competence in State Examinations Ewha produced six successful candidates in the 2022 Open Competitive Examination for National Public Service for Grade V Positions (formerly the “Civil Service Examination”), including two top scorers for some major service positions, and marked its best-ever result, producing four successful candidates in the Diplomatic Service Examinations. On October 3 (Tue.), the Ministry of Personnel Management announced 363 successful candidates in the 2021 Open Competitive Examination for National Public Service for Grade V Positions and the Diplomatic Service Examinations. Among them, In-yeong Noh (Economics, incoming class of 2017) who applied for a general administrative position and Min-yeong Lee (Science Education, incoming class of 2018) who applied for an education administrative position for National Public Service for Grade V Positions scored the highest, reaffirming the reputation of Ewha as a prestigious private university that produces elite female public officials. In addition, Ewha showed an even distribution of successful candidates across all other service positions, including Ji-eun An (Economics, incoming class of 2015) and Han-ju Yang (Public Administration, incoming class of 2016) for general administrative positions, Da-won Yun (Statistics, incoming class of 2018) for a finance and economy position, and So-hui Park (German Language & Literature, graduating class of 2012) for an international trade position for National Public Service for Grade V Positions. Ewha also made the remarkable achievement of producing four successful candidates in the Diplomatic Service Examinations, overcoming the high competition rate of 37.2 to 1 with only 40 final successful candidates selected among a total of 1,486 applicants. Hyo-jin So (English Language & Literature, graduating class of 2021), Bo-mi Park (Economics, graduating class of 2018), So-yeon Jeong (Social Welfare, graduating class of 2022), and So-yeon Park (French Language & Literature, incoming class of 2014), who earned the honor of being final successful candidates, will be appointed as diplomats after a year of training at the Korea National Diplomatic Academy. The Ewha Career Development Center (President Il Hyun Jo) has been actively promoting the entry of Ewha family members into public posts by operating many specialized programs offered by the university, such as professor-prepared mock tests, test reviews, interview guidance, and mentorship programs, led by the Guiding Committee for the National Public Service Examination Preparation Team (Chairperson Chung Lae Cho). With this continued support, Ewha has enjoyed the reputation of being one of the top universities in terms of producing successful candidates in the state examinations, such as the youngest successful candidate of the Foreign Service State Examinations in 2013, the first-place successful candidate of the Legislative Service Examination for general administrative positions and the Administrative Service Examination for education administrative positions in 2015, three final successful candidates for the 2016 Diplomatic Service Examinations, the first-place successful candidate of the Administrative Service Examination for financial and economy positions in 2016, and the first-place successful candidate of the 2020 National Public Service Examination for Grade V Positions for education administrative positions, the successful candidate who passed both the Legislative Service Examination and the Open Competitive Examination for National Public Service for Grade V Positions, and the first-place successful candidates for the grade V general administrative and education administrative positions, thereby cementing the school’s status as a major institution that is leading the “female boom” in the state examinations.

2022 Female Technology Startup Forum Held under the Theme of ‘‘Women, Technology, and the Future’’ An event for students interested in startup culture and aspiring founders of technology-based startups Talks with Vice President Michael W. Punke of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and a talk concert sharing visions of businesswomen and female startup founders The 2022 Female Technology Startup Forum under the theme of ‘‘Women, Technology, and the Future’’ was successfully held at the LG Convention Hall on September 29 (Thu.). As part of the ‘‘Korean I-Corps” program, the forum was organized for companies in Korea and abroad that offer various on-demand services to share the processes and innovative results through which they realized their ideas and created new value with Ewha students who dream of starting their own business. The Korean I-Corps refers to an innovation startup education program launched by the Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT) in 2015 upon benchmarking the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF)’s Innovation Corps (I-Corps) program in line with Korea’s situation. Ewha was selected in May as a women-specific institution of the Korea Innovation Technology Startup Center (KITS), the host organization of the Korean I-Corps program. The forum was simultaneously held offline and online via livestreaming through the YouTube channel and began with opening remarks by President Hyang Sook Lee of the Ewha University-Industry Collaboration Foundation (EUICF), a congratulatory address by Director Bong-soo Kim of the Commercializations Promotion Agency for R&D Outcomes (COMPA), and a welcome speech by Executive Vice President for External Affairs Kyung Shik Shin. Part 1 of the forum featured talks with Michael W. Punke, Vice President of Global Public Policy (GPP) at Amazon Web Services (AWS). Meanwhile, Part 2 featured a talk concert titled ‘‘Talks about the Future Technology and Women’s Entrepreneurship” for sharing experiences and know-how of technology businesswomen. Part 1 consisted of a conversation between AWS Vice President Michael W. Punke and Quint Simon, Head of Public Policy, APAC at AWS, under the theme of ‘‘An Encounter between Cloud-Based Advanced Technologies and Entrepreneurship.” In the conversation, Vice President Punke remarked on Amazon’s corporate culture of respecting diversity, women’s entrepreneurship in the cloud era, and anecdotes and know-how related to his career as a writer, a diplomat, and an executive member of a global IT company. This was followed by a Q&A session, during which students asked a range of questions including how he overcame difficulties while working for the IT company as a policy expert and what a background in liberal arts meant in engineering fields. In particular, the conversation drew attention as it marked Vice President Punke’s first visit to Korea with the hope of meeting the students of Ewha Womans University, an educational institution that embodies the values of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as shared by AWS. In Part 2, Soo-jung Lee, Head of Education and Healthcare at AWS, presented a special lecture under the theme of ‘‘Women@IT.” Subsequently, Soo-won Eom, CEO of Adriel, a company offering customized digital marketing solutions, shared her startup experience under the theme of ‘‘Artificial Intelligence (AI) Digital Marketing Service,” while Ji-young Kang, CEO of Robo Arete, an innovative company developing a cooking robot and AI, shared her startup case under the theme of ‘‘Robot Food Tech Robert Chicken.” Part 2 was presided by CEO Na-ree Lee of Hey Joyce and wrapped up with practical and candid conversations among female entrepreneurs on women’s technology startups and plans to facilitate such startups under the theme of ‘‘Talking about Future Technology and Women’s Entrepreneurship.”
