Mission: Strive to improve diversity in the workplace through support and empowerment of women and other minority groups in the Chubu area. Objectives: (1) Offer professional support and opportunities for working women to develop their skills to assist them in reaching their full career potential. (2) Encourage work life balance for all professionals. (3) Promote interests of other minority groups (including the physically challenged, foreigners, older workers, etc.). (4) Promote the benefits of diversity to businesses in the Chubu area in order to contribute to and improve the local economy. This committee is committed to both advocacy and mentorship. We hold monthly meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of the month and aim annually to hold 3-4 speaker events and a mini-summit on diversity in the workplace. Men and women concerned with creating a more diverse working environment in Chubu are encouraged to join this committee.
