Building Japan-America Relationships Since 1909
Strong leaders who drive positive change through inclusive leadership and corporate social responsibility (CSR) are essential to long-term business success and sustainable growth as investors and shareholders demand that management focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues. Studies show that companies with higher representation of women at the executive levels are significantly more likely to outperform those with fewer or no women executives.
In particular, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced companies to reconceptualize traditional business models and address the growing interest in ESG matters, including diversity and inclusion.
Join us for an interactive discussion with three innovative and inclusive leaders on this critical topic that matters now more than ever.

About Women's Leadership Counts Initiative
In 2014, the Japan America Society of Southern California's Women's Leadership Counts Initiative (WLCI) was created as a first-of-its-kind initiative to provide a platform for women in business on both sides of the Pacific to engage in professional and leadership development.
Together with our partner organizations, business executives and community leaders, the WLCI will create a network that inspires action and moves the needle on women's leadership.
WLCI's Mission Statement
To provide an inclusive and diverse platform for women in business to engage in professional and global leadership development.
Who Should Attend
Current and future corporate, business, academic, non-profit and entrepreneurial women and men leaders who value the U.S-Japan collaboration and wish to expand their networks.
Why You Should Attend
LEARN from global leaders – Understanding the culture of the parent company, management, or client from Japan or overseas is key to having a successful career.
INVEST in yourself – Exchange ideas as well as challenges you are facing with peers and mentors, and learn tactics to advance your career.
