From the Director: Yvonne Kim, Korea Center
Warm greetings from the Asia Society Korea Center!
Since its founding in April 2008, Asia Society Korea has established itself as a leading non-profit, non-partisan organization that seeks to increase understanding and engagement in issues of cultural, educational, political, business, and technological importance to Korea and the greater Asia-Pacific region.
Asia Society Korea supports the global mission of Asia Society in four ways: First, as a universal platform for U.S.-Asia dialogue and thought leadership; second, as a high-profile medium for Asian collaboration and exchange; third, as an active force to cultivate and integrate the next generation of Asian leaders; and fourth, as a catalyst to promote a shared future for Koreans, Asians, and Americans.
A particular focus of Asia Society Korea is the preparation of next-generation leaders for an increasingly global world. We do this in several ways: by educating young Koreans about the most critical issues facing Korea and the world, by strengthening connections between Korean peers and the global community, and by fostering education through our Voice of Youth (VOY), Asia Society Korea Youth (ASK-Y), and Asia 21 Young Leaders programs.
As we approach our 15th anniversary, Asia Society Korea is proud of our many high-profile programs and events. These have ranged from panel discussions on timely and necessary policy, business, or social affairs to talks on cultural matters such as film, performance, or food. Our public programs work closely with the diplomatic community, government, academia, media, and business to explore issues from Korea’s relations with other countries to the importance of Korea in the international sphere.
We hope you will continue to engage with Asia Society Korea, come to our programs, share in the excitement of learning and developing stronger ties, and support us in the months and years ahead. We count on your support in bringing the world to Korea and Korea to the world.
