2020 Japan WINConference: Pioneering the Future with New Ways of Working, Living and Leading (as workshop during global conference)

This event will provide you with inspiration, knowledge, practical tools and contacts to help you succeed and prepare for the future. It will help you lead the way and support others that do so too. WIN will inspire you and accompany you on your journey as an integrated global, authentic and feminine leader. Becoming a part of the WINConference also gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in an exchange of best practices with companies embracing diversity, initiating inclusive cultures and where you can find women leading the way.

We ask: who are the individuals and organizations leading the way with purpose, creating work places with meaning, and developing societies where everyone has the freedom of choice in a world in which we all flourish? We also look at how and why you are called to step up and create the future you envision – and actively support others in doing so.

WHAT A global leadership conference and summit of plenary sessions, workshops, working forums, a networking lunch and dinner connecting you to ideas, energy and people.

WHO Women and men in senior and middle management, consultants, entrepreneurs, NGO, leaders, politicians, artists, all longing for a positive change in their world, work and life.... YOU!

WHY Join to inspire and be inspired, to learn and to share, to create and co-create, to contribute and to connect with ideas, yourself and other outstanding leaders from Japan and the rest of the world.


  • Become updated on the emerging global trends and the new changing global context.
  • Discover how women can collaborate to lead a gender-based work agenda towards a thriving future in Japan.
  • Explore how organizations and individuals create the future.
  • Learn how to find possibilities which enable companies, employees, clients and society to grow in a sustainable way.
