GOLD is an NGO which is “An organization dedicated to developing global women leaders and building bridges across the Pacific”. GOLD was founded by Ms. Hiroko Tatebe who went to the United States for university and then launched her career.
One of the main activities of GOLD is its Annual Symposium. The Symposium will be held this year on October 28th in Tokyo.
“Turning Strategy into Action through 3Cs: Creativity, Collaboration and Connection”
Time and Date: October 28, 2011, 09:00 to 17:00
Location: Tokyo American Club
Ms. Susan H. Roos, wife of the current American ambassador to Japan, will be giving a keynote address on the theme of “Women’s Leadership: From “I Can’t” to “I Will” while I will be talking on “Turn Crisis into Opportunity: Time to Shape and Create New Next Generation Diversity”.
Ms. Roos is a labor law attorney who is well known in the United States and is a passionate supporter of the empowerment of women.
While there is a fee for participation (which is a tad on the high side), I think that you will find this Symposium to be well worth attending. There will also be a reception at the end of the day’s events.
I would be really happy to see you if this event fits into your schedule and budget.
