We greatly appreciate your continued support under such a difficult time. To take an advantage of online tools, we have started online Global Career series for middle school and high school students. Students from Hokkaido, Nagano, Tokyo, Iwate, and Fukuoka already attended.
“Global Career Series” provides online learning opportunity to middle and high school students who are interested in paving their way through their future in the global world. It is an interactive educational program where participants can learn about professional work and experience from the people who are globally active in various fields and study-abroad life from the students studying at overseas universities. This program gives chance for students to ask the speakers questions directly. This gives students not only the opportunity to think about their future life planning but also vital knowledge that may help to navigate future global career. More information for Global Career Series, please go HERE (in Japanese).
We are also resuming Women's Dialogue with online, and inviting professionals who are globally active. This Dialogue series was held in Washington, D.C. with intimate networking setting, but now open to global audience who can participate with meeting tools. We organize Women's Dialogue series to develop and expand Asian women’s presence in global leadership roles in business, government, political, and social activities, featuring prominent role models in various sectors, who would kindly share their life experience. WWD offers opportunities to frankly discuss various issues on social and international challenges and learn how to overcome such challenges. The first online Women's Dialogue will be held on Oct. 21, 8am (Japan time) and welcome you to join. The details are found here.
We will explore new means to pursue our goal and we greatly appreciate your support. Thank you very much for taking time to read our newsletter.
We had to postpone our scheduled events in Usa city (Oita prefecture) and Nagasaki city due to COVID-19. We are exploring online program “Global Career Series” for junior and senior high school students who will be expected to pave their way through their future in the global world. It is an interactive educational program where participants can learn about professional work and experience from the people who are globally active in various fields and study-abroad life from the students studying at overseas universities, and also ask the speakers questions directly. This gives participants not only the opportunity to think about their future life planning but also vital knowledge necessary to live in the international community. We are very looking forward to have WISE workshops in summer 2021. We will update our activiteis on our website www.jsie.net (Japanese) as well as www.jsie.net/en (English).

Kumamoto Followup Meeting
By Hiromi Murakami - Project Leader
JSIE organized Kumamoto Followup meeting and provided members and supporters an opportunity to network and reconnect with colleagues and mentors from the past JSIE summer programs and to share thoughts and recent experience with them. We welcomed a former head of the nursing department at Jikei Hospital in Kumamoto who had played a leading role in installing/operating Japan’s first baby hatch "Konotori no Yurikago" for mothers to leave babies they cannot care for, as a mentor-speaker. Her inspiring talk about how baby hatch changed nurses' mindset and struggles they continue to face, followed by active discussion on social changes, education, and mindset. Thank you for all of your support!
