Unpacking Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Workplace Diversity in Japan, Canada, and the US
There are signs that Japan is moving toward greater equality, as evidenced by recent government legislation and policies that promote gender equity in the workplace, protect LGBTQ+ students from bullying in schools, mandate the provision of reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities in higher education, and ease immigration controls for foreign workers. But what do terms like diversity, equity, and inclusion really mean in a Japanese cultural context? How have the meanings of these terms evolved, and why? How does the understanding of these terms in Japan compare with the understanding of these terms in North America?

We have invited an all-women panel of Japanese, America, and Canadian leaders in business, non-profit, and academia to help us unpack these issues. The panel will discuss how these terms and concepts are being used in Japan (in these three sectors) to include, exclude, and prioritize groups of people, particularly women, LGBTQ+ communities, and persons with disabilities.

The webinar is free and open to public. Registration is required.

We will provide the following accommodations for this webinar:
• English and Japanese interpretation
• English and Japanese live captions (CART)
• American Sign Language and Japanese Sign Language

Please contact us if you need additional accommodations to fully participate in this webinar.
