2016 ACCJ Women in Business Summit The challenges that lie ahead in the fight for female participation in the workforce in Japan
By Maxine Cheyney
This year’s Women in Business (WIB) Summit, held on October 27 at the ANA InterContinental Tokyo, focused on the challenges that lie ahead in the fight for female participation in the workforce in Japan. According to American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ) President Christopher J. LaFleur, one of the biggest challenges is growing the role women are able to play in leadership and management. Asking how we can bring about change in our own institutions, he highlighted the recently published WIB white paper, Untapped Potential.
