Empowering Women in the U.S and Japan

Join our speakers at the Bellevue Hilton for a very important discussion on how we can empower women in the workforce. Guest speakers will discuss what you can do to promote gender quality at your workplace and what is being done now in Seattle and Japan. 

You can even voice your own opinions during the Q&A session or network with the speakers and other guests during the post-program reception.

The third in the series, this panel will provide another look at this issue. The promotion of the role of women is a significant policy priority for both the U.S. and Japan. Both countries are committed to furthering gender equality in the workplace and women's full participation in our societies by working together in various platforms. A panel discussion will cover the link between female participation in the workforce and the impact on the overall economic growth in Washington State and beyond as well as the changes in corporate culture to further ensuring women play more active roles to strengthen the economy.
