Prof. Yoko Ishikura, Graduate School of Media Design, Keio University


In a press conference on April 19, Prime Minister Abe argued that women are the least utilized human resource in Japan and that the use of their potential ability should be the locomotive to put the now stagnant Japanese economy back on to a growth path. 


FPCJ has invited Professor Yoko Ishikura, Graduate School of Media Design, Keio University, a specialist on the “Innovation Strategy in Global Competition” and “Global Human Resources,” to talk about “Womenomics.” After getting her DBA at Harvard Business School, Ms. Ishikura worked at McKinsey & Company, Aoyama Gakuin University, and Hitotsubashi University. She is currently an external director of such companies as Fujitsu Limited and Nissan Foods Holdings Company, and serves as vice chair-person of the Global Agenda Council on Education and Skills at the World Economic Forum.
