Women’s Impact Network (WIN) Launch – March 19

Engaging women in the workforce is a key issue for San Francisco/Silicon Valley and Japan. New research proves what we have known – diversity in the workforce can be a critical element for innovation, risk management and improved performance.

The WIN Network seeks to:

Educate both men and women on best practices from around the globe in managing gender bias and removing structural impediments to success.

Inform on positive developments in gender equity/women in the workforce.

Inspire through offering speakers who can share their stories – including women executives, women serving on Japanese boards, women who have re-entered the workforce after a period at home, women entrepreneurs as well as women authors and bloggers.

Provide a forum where women can raise issues, share concerns/challenges, and identify solutions to their challenges in the workforce.

The kick-off event held was a tremendous success, with over 100 engaged women and men joining the event! Emiko Higashi, Diana Tidd and Tracy Gopal spoke, highlighting the positive changes they’ve seen and how networks like WIN can inspire, educate, and help foster greater opportunities for all.

Please join us in continuing to build this community of passionate men and women. This kick-off event was but the first step on this journey. The future of this network will be determined by the goals and aspirations of its members.

We encourage you to get involved!
