Professional women are notoriously underrepresented not only in science and technology and university positions, but even more so in senior business positions and politics in Japan. Join Dr. Yuko Harayama, formerly a member of the Cabinet Office Council for Science, Technology and Innovation and one of the leading women in Japanese science and technology for a discussion of the challenges and opportunities for women in Japan right now, why politics seems so impenetrable, and how business can change toward more diversity and inclusion.
• Yuko Harayama, Executive Director, RIKEN
• Ulrike Schaede, Professor and Director of the Japan Forum for Innovation and Technology, GPS UC San Diego
