Please join us for a special presentation from Kathy Matsui, Vice-Chair of Goldman Sachs Japan, Co-head of Macro Research in Asia and Chief Japan Strategist. Kathy is one of the most famous female role models in Japan. She’s been credited with coining the term “Womenomics” and has been a key speaker around the world on the issues related to Womenomics. Kathy will provide an update on her research related Womenomics, discussing some of its ‘myths,’ what progress has been made, and what is still left to do.
She will also share insights on her work with the Asian University for Women and her own career path, and share her thoughts on the outlook for the Japanese economy/political environment.
