【OIH Seminar】 Mindset program for working women with global mind ; How should we think and act in the future society?

The idea of “Active participation in society by women” is taken up as the core of the growth strategy for Japanese economy. As their opportunities are expanding in and out of Japan, women themselves may as well rethink the way they should be in society.
In this seminar, we invite Akiko MacDonald who has 40 year work experience at Japanese, American and British companies and in particular waded through British male-dominated society to achieve many award-winning works as a top salesperson. We are discussing the significance to participate in both domestic and international societies for elegant and independent Japanese women living in this century with their hidden strength.
