Episode 9: Global Community: Pandemic and Gender Equality in Japan

I had the opportunity to talk and learn from Kaori Sasaki who is instrumental in demonstrating the power, knowledge and strength of the global community. Kaori is a phenomenal entrepreneur, innovator, leader and CEO of two companies, Unicul International Inc. and ewomen, Inc.  Kaori has sat on corporate boards of many large public corporate companies in Japan, and been an instrumental leader in gender equality since the early 90s in Japan.  She is involved with many government agencies like the World Bank and non-profit organizations.  Kaori shared with me how COVID-19 has impacted Japan and the plans for the 25th annual global women’s conference in Japan.  She also shared her expertise and research behind a diversity index that she created and has used to demonstrate the economic impact and significance of diversity on companies.
