Event Details

March marks the start of Women's History Month, an annual celebration that pays tribute to the remarkable contributions of women to historical events and contemporary society. This celebration resonates not only in the United States, Britain, and Australia but also globally, aligning with International Women's Day on March 8. This year's theme, "Inspire Inclusion," adds an uplifting dimension to the celebrations. Both Women's History Month and International Women's Day serve as global commemorations of women's accomplishments in the social, economic, cultural, and political spheres.

Throughout this month, a diverse range of global activities will unfold, bringing together communities to honor women's achievements, raise awareness for women's equality, advocate for positive change, and expedite progress toward gender parity. Asia Society Japan is proud to contribute to this celebration by hosting a symposium on March 6. This event stands as a testament to our commitment to recognizing and championing the accomplishments of women and fostering discussions that inspire positive change.

Amid Asia Society's "Year of Japan," a series of programs extending until June 2024, the Japan Center has initiated discussions on hosting a conference centered around women's education and leadership. The planning began last August, and, in collaboration with the women's leadership stream led by Japan Center Founding Member Claire Chino, the aim is to craft a program that will inspire future generations. This involves supporting women and girls in attaining leadership roles, decision-making positions, and pursuing careers in STEM with guidance from experts in these fields.

This conference is structured around two pivotal discussions. The first, "Advancing Women in STEM: A Strategic Outlook for Japan," focuses on the education sector and aims to scrutinize the evolving landscape of STEM in Japan. The panel serves as a strategic platform not only for acknowledging positive trends but also for analyzing, strategizing, and envisioning a future where women in STEM play integral and empowering roles within Japan's professional landscape. The second discussion, "The Future of Women's Leadership in Business: Strategic Approaches for Transformation," is dedicated to shaping the trajectory of women's leadership in the business domain. This panel will examine leadership disparities in the U.S., Japan, and globally, scrutinize policy landscapes, and explore what the private sector and individuals can do to enhance the situation.

With global leaders from the Asia Society in attendance, these discussions are poised to be dynamic and engaging, providing a platform for active dialogue and collaboration.
