Climate change, ageing populations, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution have presented the world with great challenges. Then, COVID-19 transformed our lives overnight, and we as individuals and as a society have struggled to understand and cope with this ‘new normal’. In her address, Professor Eun Mee Kim will reflect on these societal changes, especially on her own experience as President of Ewha Womans University in South Korea, and on what needs to be done so that existing inequalities are not replicated into the future.


Professor Eun Mee Kim is the 17th President of Ewha Womans University. She is Professor in the Graduate School of International Studies and Director of the Ewha Global Health Institute for Girls and Women. Professor Kim is globally recognised as a leading scholar on international development.
