Ewha Institute for Leadership Development


Established in September 2003, the Ewha Institute for Leadership Development at Ewha Womans University is South Korea’s first educational institute for fostering core female leadership by providing focused education on female leadership development.


The objective of the Ewha Institute for Leadership Development (EILD) is the individual and collective empowerment of current and prospective women leaders in business, politics, government, and professional and civic organizations. By broadening vision, honing leadership competency, and strengthening networks, women leaders can become empowered to make a difference in their communities and in society in general.


EILD recognizes that women’s leadership and feminist values have a positive impact on our male and our female contemporaries. Effective leaders must be equally firm and gentle, principled and flexible, participatory and initiatory, stable and progressive, resolute and caring.


As a unique institution of Ewha Womans University, EILD will further make its contribution to society by sharing the universities’ 135-year academic heritage with women from emerging generations.

Vision an Mission

Vision and Mission


Women are valuable resources for leading
the global era


EILD focuses on female potential.

Women will serve as leaders and agents for changes in future society.


Academically systemized and specialized education for female leadership

EILD seeks the specialization of education and research for fostering female leaders.

Since the social structure of women’s roles and status in society are differentiated, we strive to meet their unique educational needs.


To foster a million female leaders to
change and lead Korea

EILD will fundamentally contribute to society by influencing the culture through training large numbers of women equipped to change Korea through their leadership.
