    Map & Directions

    In 2014, the Japan America Society of Southern California's Women's Leadership Counts Initiative 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.

    At a time when companies have workforces which can include up to 5 different generations, how do successful leaders maximize the talents of these very different generations? To lead across generations, leaders must understand what makes each generation unique and how unconscious bias may create blinders. When you add into the mix how technology is changing at such a fast pace, it is more important than ever to facilitate sharing, incorporate new views and foster creativity. Can technology help to facilitate harmony and communications in work environments that include multiple generations and cultural gaps? Join us to learn how effective leaders are innovating with their talent across generations. The program will include a keynote speaker, panel discussion, and interactive table discussions. The networking reception will provide opportunities to connect with speakers and attendees from a broad range of industries.


    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
    • DISCOVER your potential - Build leadership and management skills and navigate through unique corporate culture in a professional environment
    • INVEST in yourself – Exchange ideas as well as challenges you are facing with peers and mentors, and learn tactics to advance your career
