Abstract

The “small group support” program was implemented to ensure the visibility and empowerment of women in science, engineering and technology (SET) primarily in the Busan, Ulsan and Gyeongnam region of Korea. The realization of this program was based on studies showing that the contingent type of employment is significantly higher in women in this southeastern region. Moreover, underrepresentation of women in the science and technology sectors has been shown to be more serious in areas further away from the national capital. The
major outcomes of this project in 2010 include the formation of two new legal associations of women in SET in the region. In 2011, ten additional “small groups” were funded, resulting in better networking opportunities that contributed to the uplifting of the morale of the participants.
