The #MeToo movement initiated a long-overdue conversation on the issue of harassment and abuse in the workplace which has negatively impacted many women, their livelihoods, and their career paths. The movement has forged a community where women are empowered to raise their voices in ways they never have before, and inspired women around the world to speak up about issues of gender equality. We still have a long way to go for full equality in the workplace. However, many successful women say that NOW is the right time to assess your career path and take actions to optimize your potential for future growth. Personal branding is one of the most important tools women can use to develop power and influence, especially in this digital era. Now is the time to consider building your brand, curating your voice and using social media to amplify your brand.
Successful entrepreneurs and authors will provide tips on individual actions and strategies that women can use to maximize their power and influence through personal branding on and offline.

Impact Leadership in the New Normal – VUCA World

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.
Originally introduced in the 1990s by the US Army War College to describe a new world of military engagement, VUCA is an acronym for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. The VUCA concept also resonates with an increasing number of executives who are facing the constantly changing challenges brought on by politics, economics, society and technology. What this environment requires is truly strategic leaders–both women and men–who can adapt to changing conditions and navigate this uncharted terrain to be effective. To maximize global and diverse talent, leaders must be innovative, collaborative, decisive, adaptive and creative. Our speakers will share their success stories and challenges to survive and thrive in a VUCA world.
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.
