 3rd GOLD symposium was a big success!

Approx. 200 women and men including 25 from Japan participated in the day-long symposium

Globalizations of the marketplace and workforce diversity have created waves of Tsunami culture across the Pacific. The need for better understanding of cultural influences on leadership and organizational practices has never been greater.

This symposium will bring together influential leaders from the U.S. and Japan to share their insights into business advantages gained through “Diversity & Inclusion” strategy and implementation, and to offer the necessary survival tools and opportunities to build new collaboration to succeed in a constantly changing borderless economy.

The symposium offers educational programs, interactive seminars and keynote speakers addressing "Impact Leadership" from three points of view: Leadership, Diversity and Culture, and Business Economic Opportunities. >> More information
