[Special Lecture] Lee Bo-young, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer(CDIO), gave a Special Lecture
[Special Lecture] Lee Bo-young, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer(CDIO), gave a Special Lecture Lee Bo-young, the CDIO(Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer) of ‘Uber’, delivered a lecture on December 4 at HM 403. The lecture was entitled "The Importance of Diversity and Adoption in Global Companies," with more than 40 students attending. CDIO Lee Bo-young gave lectures in order of △ growth process and career introduction, △ task(CDIO) description in Uber, and △ question and answer. Referring to her past days as an MBA student at New York University, she explained why he became interested in the 'diversity and inclusion' of corporate culture. "When I first took an MBA program, I was a minority," she said. “I was Asian-American, a woman, and just a yoga instructor at the time." "To me, what 'diversity and inclusion' means is to think about how 'diversity and inclusion' is different, how to maximize diversity and inclusion, and how to properly guarantee the differences between tasks that arise there," he explained. She then went on to explain the level of women's academic background in the U.S. and the state of women's business expansion, referring to last year's sexual harassment problem in Uber. "Uber's sex scandal at the time has led me to become the first person in charge of diversity and inclusion in Uber," she said. I'm working hard with my staff to solve this difficult problem, and it is great pleasure to me to take that role." The 15-minute question-and-answer session after the lecture drew many students' questions. One student asked, "You are busy with various roles of yoga instructer, worker and mother, and I wonder how you can live in harmony and balance among the different roles." Lee stressed that work-life balance is a very important issue. "I've been busy in many countries these days, but when I get back to New York, I always try to spend time with my children and take some time off to travel with my family. "I think it's important to meet a good spouse who understands my job because my husband's role is also big." Meanwhile, Lee Bo-young, who is in charge of diversity and inclusion, is the first person in Uber to be appointed in January of 2018, and is in charge of innovating Uber's corporate culture, which has been a problem due to the sex scandal. The person in charge of diversity is mostly employed by global companies as a job that allows women and minorities to be employed and engaged in their jobs without discrimination.

Ui-Kyu Park explained the difficulties of Culture & Art Startup. He said, “Culture & Art Startups tend to grow slowly in the beginning compared to other industries” and “People having interest in something and actually paying money to buy it is a totally different story. The point is to ‘marketize’ the public’s interests.” According to Mr. Park, startups can grow the market by utilizing initial marketing expenses with competitors, but when competitors do not exist, the startup must solely deal with the marketing expense which as a result makes the initial growth slow. Mr. Park also stressed that the growing formula of Culture & Art Startups are different from that of preexisting startup industry. He explained “Consumers use cost-effectiveness as a standard when buying necessary goods related to food and shelter, but when it comes to emotional goods, the same standard is not applied”. He also stated the difficulty of a ‘market with a lot of bias’. Mr. Park said, “Since there isn’t much of a successful precedence, most people express negative thoughts when I say that I will begin a startup”. Nevertheless, he emphasized the entrepreneur’s mindset that “1 person may be right and 49 can be wrong out of 50people. Even if others say no, it does not mean it can’t be done”. Each semester, KUBS Startup Institute holds practice-based lecture series ‘Lecture on Demand’ and ‘Startup Lecture Series’ about startups and business venture. Anyone interested in the KUBS startup business teams and any KUBS students are welcome to participate in the lectures. For further inquiries, please contact KUBS Startup Institute at 02-3290-2551.

[Start-Up Lecture Series] TreePlanet CEO Hyung-soo Kim“Our goal is to create mutual benefit with partners”
[Start-Up Lecture Series] TreePlanet CEO Hyung-soo Kim "Our goal is to create mutual benefit with partners" Third lecture series during the second half of year 2018 was held on November 13 (Tue) at 6:30 in Business School Main Building Start-Up Center. TreePlanet's CEO Hyung-soo Kim gave a lecture about 'Power of Partnership'. TreePlanet is a socially innovated company in which they create forests with strong cooperation with its partners, already planted 700 thousand trees in 12 different countries. CEO Kim was once a film director of environment documentary and through being policy advisory consultant for Korea Forest Service, trained his expertise in this field. CEO Kim mentioned that he felt a lack of power of environment documentary that it only boosts people's awareness towards environment, not until the real action, which was the reason why he established a company that actually creates a genuine forest. CEO Kim explained the entry-stage business model (typical business model) called 'GAME' model. This game, 'TreePlanet' allows users to plant a real tree when they plant virtual trees when they play game. Company just simply insert the logo of the client, from which it receives advertisement fee, and use this fee to plant a real tree where tree is desperately needed. CEO Kim is satisfied that there are more and more sponsorship towards the company and business model is transforming into more intuitive and rather straightforward. He pointed out 'StarForest Project' and 'Adopting a tree' project as an example while highlighting many helps from company partners to individual partners. During the Q&A session, there was a question about how to form a partnership. He answered that one needs to build positive brand awareness/image through effective business model. As for TreePlanet, it was easier to form a partnership after winning a contest or being nominated as official app while internally, being chosen by a good inner circle, participating in good incubating system and analyzing predecessors' failed cases were certainly helpful. CEO Kim's ultimate goal is to make TreePlanet as a company not only seeking for the operating profit but also a company that genuinely helps its partner and entire community by setting its motto as 'Try to make partner more outstanding rather than our company, act like a tree that gives out everything without hesitation.'. Meanwhile, StartUp Center is hosting 'Lecture on demand' and 'Lecture Series' every semester to expose its students towards startup and venture. These lectures are opened to everyone, thus KUBS students and every single personnels who are interested in this lecture can participate.
