Vivian Tokai heads the Diversity team at Citibank Japan, a unique position for a Japanese woman, as only 6% of women in Japan are in management positions. Previously, Vivian held many other leadership posts – as the Director of government Relations at GE Japan, the Public Affairs Manager at UPS, and as a Sports News Anchor/Weekend News Anchor at TBS and NHK. And just last year she ran as an LDP candidate for the Upper House Election in the Japanese Parliament! All these opportunities gave her first-hand experience on how to get things accomplished.
Vivian will talk about a hot topic in business today, Diversity, and its growing importance in the workplace. Diversity is important for both women and men, and for the future of Japan. Many hints will be offered on how companies and women can work together to be more successful and achieve more diverse workplaces. We are sure that you will be able to take away invaluable lessons on how you can be more confident in your approach to business strategy. Come join us for a stimulating conversation about your future!
