Professional Forum (PF)

The Professional Forum (PF) at the US-Korea Conference (UKC) is a forum under the Career and Leadership Track called the “Young Generation and Professional Forums (YG/PF).” This program will span 3 days during UKC from Thursday through Saturday.

The Professional Forum aims to provide career and leadership development to mid-career industry professionals, who generally have 10 or more years of experience. As we progress through our careers, there are many situations that we are faced but unsure of how to approach them:

  • How do I make myself more noticeable within the company?
  • How do I deal with colleagues whom I do not get along with?
  • How do I have a difficult conversation?
  • What do I do when I’m harassed at work?
  • I want to settle down and that’s requiring more financial commitment

As such, the Professional Forum will explore different topics that are not readily discussed in the workplace and is aimed to provide guidance and skill set to mid-career industry professionals. Participants will share their leadership and/or career experiences through poster presentations or career speed talks. Lastly, participants to the Professional Forum will have immense opportunities to network with other professionals throughout UKC.

The separate YG/PF application and support information is found under the CFP / APPLY menu.
