Resource Development Centres a success in South Korea
Workplace skills training has been a success for the Korean Association of University Women (KAUW). These Resource Development Centres, set up in several locations in South Korea, upskill young women entering the job market, as well as those wishing to returning to work. Office skills such as IT training are offered as well as useful practical skills, for example car maintenance. These centres are an excellent example of women’s economic empowerment in action - they are a direct reponse to the professional needs of women who want skills to increase their economic opportunity and entrepreneurship, as well as every day life skills. GWI’s national federations and associations (NFAs) in over 60 countries, actively work towards the empowerment of girls and women through education up to the highest levels.

Gender Wage Gap Report 2015 just released by Insititute for Women’s Policy Research
The Gender Wage Gap Report for 2015 has just been released by the The Institute for Women's Policy Research (IWPR). The report sheds light on the shocking fact that women’s median earnings are lower than men’s in nearly all occupations in the USA. Altogether, there are only four occupations in which women’s median earnings are slightly higher than men’s, but 108 occupations in which women’s median earnings were 95 % or lower than men’s. In general it is the highest paid occupations that have the biggest gender gaps and the lowest paid occupations that have the smallest gaps. Graduate Women International advocates for the economic empowerment of women, which includes ending all forms of discrimination against women in the workforce, and closing the gender pay gap.
