The 2012 JWLI Forum which was held in Yokohama is featured in the article, titled “NPO・女性・横浜がもつ大きな可能性” in April, and attended nearly by 120 people. The keynote speaker was the mayor of Yokohama, 林文子. The participants had great discussions on women’s leadership in non-profit organizations. Specifically, the goal of the forum is to encourage women to become leaders, especially in the nonprofit sector, which is more important than ever in the aftermath of the 3.11 disaster in Japan.
