U.S.-Japan Parliamentary Exchange Program

US-Japan Women Leaders Dialogue
September 15–17, Tarrytown NY

JCIE held the first US-Japan Women Leaders Dialogue to convene top women leaders from varying walks of life in both countries at the beautiful Pocantico Conference Center of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. This included four members of a Diet delegation traveling to the United States on JCIE’s Parliamentary Exchange Program, as well as Internal Affairs Minister Seiko Noda, the highest-ranking woman presently serving in the Japanese Cabinet.

A group of 25 inspirational women (and a few men) from the political, business, think tank, academic, media, and philanthropic sectors joined to discuss ways to advance women's leadership in domestic politics and business, work-life balance, and broader issues of policy concern: the US-Japan alliance and promoting stability in Asia Pacific, US-Japan cooperation in supporting the international order, and the shared challenges of globalization and economic populism.

The dialogue was made possible through the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation and the Japan-US Friendship Commission.
