2017 JWLI Program Has Started!

On October 10th, 2017, Atsuko Fish hosted a welcome reception for her program, Japanese Women’s Leadership Initiative (JWLI). Atsuko founded JWLI in 2006 and this year the program celebrated its 11th anniversary.

As the primary mission of the program, JWLI empowers Japanese women to become leaders and make positive social change and innovation in Japan. The reception took place at Fish Family Foundation located in Boston, and many friends came together to welcome five fellows for this year’s JWLI program.

As a finale of the four-week long program, the JWLI fellows will be giving short presentations on their “Action Plans” at Cambridge Innovation Center on Thursday, November 2nd from 5:15pm to 6:15pm. This year’s fellows have backgrounds in a variety of fields, ranging from end-of-life care, temple management to refugee and immigrant empowerment. Please come join us for this excellent opportunity to learn how these women leaders are trying to change Japan!
