There are very few women leaders in modern day Japan. To solve this problem, four Japanese and American college students established LADY: Leadership and Action for Determined Youth, a leadership program for Japanese high school girls in September 2015. Each member individually realized the importance of women’s issues, but they have come together to work towards one goal, to lead Japanese high school girls to become future women leaders of Japan. Now, thanks to the generosity of many people who share our mission, the LADY program will finally become a reality on July 28th~30th.
LADY is a unique international three day leadership and development conference for young women in Tokyo seeking to be the leaders in shaping the Japan of tomorrow. This immersive and transformative program brings ambitious high school students together with leading successful women and university student mentors from both Japan and abroad for three engaging days of inspiring presentations, exciting workshops and stimulating mentoring activities. LADY aims to be an opportunity for young women to be able to choose their own future goals and a community that supports young women after the program.
