As a sequel to the similarly titled program from last year, this webinar will be an honest and enlightening conversation by four women leaders. The speakers will discuss their journeys to success and becoming leaders and mentors. They will also share how and why they reached their accomplishments and will also reflect on the struggles and detours they faced along the way. Part I will consist of a panel discussion of three business leaders involved in U.S. and Japan relations in varying industries, and Part II will consist of an interview of a recently retired senior executive of a major Japanese corporation.

The Regional Women In Leadership (RWL) program is in its seventh year at the U.S.-Japan Council. The program’s objective is to provide opportunities for discussions on the advancement of women in leadership. RWL encourages members and collaborators to convene in a series of events to educate and discuss women‘s leadership in the context of U.S.-Japan relations, creating a conversation about women’s issues among diverse communities and business leaders. Funding is provided by the Government of Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
