Women: Stop dreaming – start acting!
Empowering women to take charge of their lives!
Happy woman feels that her life is meaningful when it comes to her family situation, her work, her leisure time and above all, herself! Happy women are happy at home, happy at work and happy with their friends. The happiness is then spread within the circle of one’s friends, family members, co-workers, companies and finally in the society. But how can women be empowered?
The Finnish Institute in Japan organizes an international conference about Women’s empowerment with prominent speakers for example members of academia, entrepreneurs and innovators from Japan and Finland share their story! Come and join and be empowered!
