Women and Social Entrepreneurship with JWLI Fellows

November 02, 2017 at 5:15pm - 6:15pm
Cambridge Innovation Center



On November 2, fellows of the Fish Family Foundation’s Japanese Women’s Leadership Initiative (JWLI) will provide 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, which takes 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.

This event is part of Japan Innovation Night, a Japan-themed night generously hosted by the Venture Café Foundation and the Cambridge Innovation Center, in partnership with the U.S.-Japan Council and the Japanese Women’s Leadership Initiative.
