Women & Social Entrepreneurship (JWLI)

Havana Room, Venture Café Kendall
One Broadway, 5th Floor
Cambridge, MA 02142

Thursday, November 2, 2017 from 5:15 PM – 6:15 PM

Fellows of the Fish Family Foundation’s Japanese Women’s Leadership Initiative (JWLI) give us first-hand insight into the social issues Japan currently faces, as well as the ways in which their organizations will help tackle these challenges. JWLI empowers Japanese women to become leaders and make positive social change in Japan, by providing a month long hands-on leadership development program taking place in Boston.

This year’s fellows have backgrounds in a variety of fields, ranging from end-of-life care to refugee and immigrant empowerment, and will be sharing with us the “action plans” that they will implement when they return to Japan.

Speakers:
Keiko Chida | Secretary General, End-of-Life Care Association of Japan
Shuko Ebihara | Founder, Kuriya
Saori Osu | Representative Director, Working Mothers Association of Japan
Kaori Matsuzaki | Director, Otera no Mirai
Akari Yuki | Project Manager of Refugee Hiring at Fast Retailing Co., Ltd

Admission: Free
All sessions will be held in English.
