Debat Annuel Jeudi 12 Mai : « Entrepreneurship in Japan: the women way”

"Entrepreneurship in Japan: the women way”

 

ーEnglish version belowー
Comme chaque année FAJ organise un grand débat en anglais ouvert à toutes et à tous, membres et non-membres, en partenariat avec la CCIFJ pour discuter de la promotion des femmes au travail au Japon.

Cette année le thème retenu est l’entrepreneurship au féminin : comment entreprendre lorsque l’on est une femme au Japon, quelles sont les difficultés éventuelles, quelle différence par rapport à leurs homologues masculins ?

Le débat sera animé par Mayumi SAKATA, Executive Officer, Group Customer Director Valeo Japan   et en charge au Japon du réseau "Valeo connected women", et réunira des entrepreneurs japonaises et françaises pour débattre de leur expérience au Japon.

De plus en plus de femmes au Japon se lancent dans l'entrepreneuriat afin d'exprimer pleinement leur potentiel et de briser le fameux " plafond de verre " qu'elles peinent à franchir en terme de salaire et de responsabilité. Cependant, malgré cette hausse récente, la part des femmes entrepreneurs reste toujours faible. Ce qui suscite de nombreuses questions : quelles sont les difficultés rencontrées par ces femmes entrepreneurs dans un milieu encore largement masculin? Quels sont leurs atouts et spécifités requis vis a vis de leur clients?, et bien sûr quelles sont les mesures concrètes mise en place pour aider à convaincre encore plus de femmes à se lancer dans l'aventure d'entrepreneuriat?

Ernst&Young  introduira le débat  en donnant un aperçu des dernières statistiques sur l'entrepreneuriat féminin au japon et leur vision sur les futurs challenges.Pour répondre à ces questions, nous avons réunis un panel de 4 femmes entrepreneurs au Japon aux parcours et experience variés :

Kayo HATTORI, group CEO & co-fondatrice , DATAWORDS
Maïa MANIGLIER, President, EXPRIME INC
Hiroko SASAKI, President & CEO, CHANGEWAVE
Mari YAMADA, executive Vice-President, MAPPLE JUICE

Save the date: Yearly debate organised by FAJ and the CCIFJ on May 12th: Entrepreneurship in Japan: the women way”
 
Every year FAJ, an association promoting the employment of French-speaking women in Japan, organises a English debate in collaboration with the French Chamber of Commerce in Japan.
This year the selected topic is: “Entrepreneurship in Japan: the women way”
 
The debate will be moderated by Mayumi SAKATA, Executive Officer, Group Customer Director Valeo Japan and in charge in Japan of au Japon du réseau "Valeo connected women", , and gather Japanese and French female entrepreneurs to discuss their experiences and feedbacks on the “women way” to launch a new company in Japan. 
More and more women in Japan revert to Entrepreneurship to express their full potential at work and break the “glass ceiling”. However despite the recent rise, the share of women entrepreneurs still remains low.
This raises questions as to what are the specific challenges of being a women entrepreneur in Japan, whether being a women entrepreneur in a business world still largely masculine brings any specific additional value to their business and customers, and of course what are the concrete measures that could help to convince even more women to try to Entrepreneur adventure.
 
Ernst&Young will introduce the debate by providing an overview of the latest statistics on women entrepreneurship in Japan and their view of the challenges ahead.
To address the questions, we have gathered a panel of four women entrepreneurs in Japan, was various background and experience.

The debate will be followed by a networking session at the Brasserie of the Institute, with free food and drinks.
