HOME > Introduction > Greeting
I am Jung Jeong-ok, CEO of the Gyeonggido Women and Family Foundation.
After 15 years since the opening of the Gyeonggido Family and Women Research Institute, we have ushered in a new beginning under the name of Gyeonggido Women and Family Foundation in 2020.
Marking the establishment of the foundation, we will engage in women's and family policy research and major projects in preparation for the next 15 years by building a network system with 31 cities and counties and relevant agencies and by establishing a platform for women's and family policy. Moreover, we will open the future of women's and family policy by actively engaging in communication with residents through various researches and businesses related to gender equality, women, family, digital sex crimes, children and youth, childcare, and multi-culture.
Having served as a research institute so far, we will now leap forward as a foundation to play the central role of a platform for women's and family policies and to lay the groundwork for the pursuit of residents’ happiness and future. We also pledge to fulfill faithfully the foundation's mission of "Making Gyeonggi more inclusive by taking a step toward equality." To this end, we will promote the value of gender equality and gender mainstreaming, realize the policy value of working together with residents, provide family support, and assume a leading role in suggesting new agenda in a rapidly changing environment.
Our dear 13 million citizens—we kindly ask for your keen interest and support for our foundation’s future of innovation and growth. Our foundation will exert all efforts to bring residents one step closer to equality and to make Gyeonggi Province more inclusive.
