The Japan Women’s Innovative Network (J-WIN) was established in 2007 to support the promotion and establishment of diversity management in companies in Japan by working to develop female leaders. As part of its programming, J-WIN offers its members international training programs to expand their networks and gain exposure to global best practices in diversity and inclusion policies and practices.
The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada’s Canadian Women’s International Network (CanWIN), a partner organization to J-WIN, will organize one session of J-WIN’s 2021 Online Overseas Training Program featuring Canadian and Asian women leaders. This event builds on two previous sessions APF Canada co-hosted with J-WIN, including an in-person conference in Toronto for 88 J-WIN delegates in late 2017.
APF Canada's Vice-President, Toronto Office, Christine Nakamura will be moderating a bilateral panel, comprising women business and thought leaders from Canada and Korea. This session, entitled ‘Canadian and Asian Perspectives: Designing Fairer Systems for Women On and Offline’ will introduce the audience to perspectives and practices of professional women leaders who, through their work in the private sector and civil society roles, strive to achieve gender equality in Canada and Asia.
