Thanks to the collaboration and efforts of our alumni, the 2015 JWLI Fellows Program Report was published in January this year. This annual report contains weekly reports of the month-long leadership program in Boston, as well as the fellows’ stories of their experiences throughout their involvement with JWLI.
“The JWLI program gave me a lot of power and courage to change myself from the inside,” says Kei Yoshidome, who is part of the Human Resource Development Group at JOICFP. “It helped me realize my inner strength…and showed me ways to think of how I could use my strength for the organization and society”
Another fellow, Junko Tsuda who is passionate about the capacity building of nonprofit organizations, writes:
“Inspired by the collective efforts we saw in the Asian American community, I am seeking to make an association based on alliances among agencies supporting women in tough situations. I made my life mission to make these associations where all women can maximize their abilities. Combining small voices, we can make a big movement.”
We would like to thank our four wonderful Fellows for all of their work and dedication to this program.
