We invited panelists who achieved success in global fields such as Ms. Kuni Sato, the first woman to take up a director-general level position at Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ms. Naina Lal Kidwai, Executive Director on the board of HSBC Asia-Pacific and Chairman India and Immediate Past President of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry(FICCI), Mr. Jesper Koll, Managing Director and Head of Japanese Equity Research of JP Morgan Securities Japan, and Maria Morris, an Executive Vice President at MetLife and a senior female leader at the company. Ms. Elizabeth Handover, Lumina Learning Partner for Asia and Co-Chair of the ACCJ Women In Business Committee, will take a role as a moderator of the panel discussion. They will talk about how to strike a successful balance between work and life, based on their experiences. We will also hold a discussion on the ideal state of organizations for female participation. We hope this opportunity will provide a strong base for action for working women, companies and organizations in Japan.

MetLife is a global company with female employees in many countries and provides life insurance -an essential infrastructure for livelihood of many people.  As a company with such background, we have extremely important responsibility in active involvement in the theme of Society Where Women Shine. We launched the JWBN (Japan Women’s Business Network), organization run by employees to promote success of female workforce, and through which we support women’s career development. Furthermore, in the hope of more active role played by women in Japan, the company assists TOMODACHI initiative as a partner of the U.S.-Japan Council (Japan).

The symposium will provide an opportunity to think together with next generation female leaders on how women should develop their career, and how organizations should foster environments that allow more active involvement by women.
