On November 2, Fellows of the Fish Family Foundation’s 2017 Japanese Women's Leadership Initiative (JWLI) pitched their ideas as part of Japan Innovation Night, which took place at CIC. The event was a huge success: over a hundred people gathered to listen to the Fellows' action plans. The Havana Conference Room, one of the largest conference rooms at CIC, was packed with people who gathered to learn how the Fellows are planning to tackle social problems in Japan. The Fellows received valuable feedback from the audience on how to make their action plans a reality. Japan Innovation Night was co-hosted by CIC, Venture Café and USJC.
