ANZCCJ invites members and guests of the Chamber to the International Women's Day (IWD) Breakfast on 8 March 2019 at the Roppongi Hills Club. To celebrate, we have invited a some special guests to share on the international IWD 2019 theme: "Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change". A panel discussion will be held with Tamio Honma, Chief Country Officer, Deutsche bank Group Japan, Reiko Hayashi, Vice Chairman, Managing Director, Merrill Lynch Japan Securities, and Sue Gannon, Deputy COO, Global HR Development and Diversity of Suntory. Each panellist will discuss the international theme and build on this by sharing their experiences in Japan and internationally. With Prime Minister Abe's 'womenomics' and maternity/paternity policies, the international #MeToo movement and other interesting developments which have somewhat "stirred the pot", come and hear more about what initiatives can better pave the way for women in the workplace.
We are also delighted to announce that our Co-Vice Chair Catherine O'Connell will be the MC for this event, our very own Chair, Sally Townsend will provide opening remarks, and the panel will be moderated by our Chair Emeritus, Melanie Brock, the first ever female chair of the ANZCCJ and founder of the Celebrating Women in Japan campaign.
We will also be showing some of the profiles of those women who have been involved in the year-long project which is a social media initiative which profiles (in Japanese and English) on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, celebrating women and their achievements.
