For the 6th consecutive year, on June 15th, ELLE Japan successfully hosted the ELLE Women in Society event, in Tokyo at Shibuya Hikarie. Through this one-day forum, ELLE Japan aims to encourage the success of women in Japan by helping them to realize their potential, to improve their performance and by supporting them to achieve work-life balance.
Themed “New era for women in a new world”, ELLE Women in Society conducted its sixth event, which is now one of the largest in Japan. Against the backdrop of our current world which faces acceleration in globalisation, changes in technologies including AI, and many social issues such as the declining birthrate and growing proportion of elderly people, the event proposed “attitude toward working” to the women of today.
Guest speakers currently active as leaders in various fields took the stage and gave special seminars. A wide variety of workshops were also offered, from lessons on applying makeup to improve your likeability, “smile lessons” in facial yoga, running sessions, and kick boxing exercise. A total of over 2,500 working women took part in the event, ending with a networking party.
This year also marked the 30th anniversary of the launch of ELLE in Japan, and a special kiosk with a row of archives had been settled.
Once again, this 6th edition of ELLE Women in Society has been really enriching and inspiring. And rendez-vous is already set for 2020!
