On March 8th, SCCJs WIN (Women's Impact Network) organized a panel discussion at Embassy of Sweden to celebrate the 1-year anniversary for WIN as well as the International Women's Day.


We invited the following speakers for a panel discussion on the theme "Build Better Business Through Diversity":

Kathy Matsui, Vice Chair, Goldman Sachs

Keiko Asano, General Manager, Munters

Yumiko Murakami, Head of OECD Tokyo Centre

Sven Östberg, Embassy of Sweden

Moderator: Melina Kalandaridis, CFO, Ericsson


Ambassador Magnus Robach started the event with a welcoming speech before Kathy showed us findings from her research working close to Japanese Government and "Womenomics" since 1999.


The panel discussion got off to a good start with plenty of questions form the audience. Thanks to an engaged audience and knowledgable panelists, many topics were covered discussed in an interactive way. 



After the panel discussion a networking reception started hosted by Embassy of Sweden. Councilor Östberg gave special recognition to individuals within SCCJ who have put in lots of voluntary work into creating and organizing WIN events throughout 2018.
