The Japanese Women's Leadership Initiative(JWLI) was founded in 2006 by Atsuko Fish, Trustee of the Fish Family Foundation with a mission to empower Japanese women to become leaders and to make positive social change and innovation in Japan.

Every year, four Japanese women participate in a four-week leadership development program in Boston and learn best practices of nonprofit management and operation. Marking the 10th anniversary this year, JWLI is hosting the Tokyo Summit in October. Over 20 women leaders both from Japan and the U.S. will gather to explore the theme of "Women Leading Social Change in Japan" together with the audience.

They will speak candidly about their personal and professional successes and failures as a leader. Come join us for a day full of inspirational stories and meet your role models. Together we will raise the bar for women's leadership in Japan!
