The purpose of the study is to look at the status of the women's leaders databases designed to expand women's participation in the public sector, and to come up with measures for the utilization of the women's leaders databases. For this purpose, this study analyzed the current status of the women's leaders databases that have been established and managed by the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family and Incheon Metropolitan Government. And In order to find ways to utilize the database of women leaders, the results of a survey conducted by the Incheon Metropolitan Government were analyzed and policy implications were drawn. The policy implications for utilizing the women's leaders database are as follows: First, systematic management such as the reorganization of the women's leaders database and the updating of the latest information are necessary. Second, it is necessary to disclose the current status of women's leaders and trends in utilization through the website. Third, the follow-up is needed through active monitoring at the national level. And if possible, the results need to be reflected in the agency performance assessment. Fourth, regular and long-term public relations strategies are needed so that the women's leaders database can be used not only for career-breaking women but also for emerging talent. Based on this study, further research on how women who entered the society through the women's leaders database will be representative as social minorities will be needed.
