The U.S.-Japan Council (USJC) Under 40 (U40) Summit brings together young adults from across the globe to share knowledge, experiences, and ideas to further the U.S.-Japan relationship. The 3-day program will allow attendees to hear from Hawaii’s top leaders, participate in valuable discussions about society’s top issues, and learn through site visits and experiential activities. By gathering people of shared values, we hope to cultivate a community of today’s brightest leaders while developing their personal and professional skills.
The U40 Summit is organized by the U.S.-Japan Council’s TOMODACHI Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) Steering Committee for ELP alumni, USJC Associates, and invited U.S.-Japan leaders under the age of 40.
