The EAJS was initiated as a joint research conference between the Institute of Medical Science of the University of Tokyo and the Institute of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Seoul National University (Korea) in 1994 and has been held annually for recent twenty-seven years. During the twenty-seven years, the EAJS has expanded by inviting other seven institutes.

In the face of ongoing change across our world, societies, and organizations, Inclusive Leadership is critical for creating conditions and climates that enhance adaptability, empowerment and collaboration, and a strong sense of community and belonging. This year’s symposium brings us together to explore how the qualities of inclusive leadership can be engendered at multiple levels across our institutions.

We invite participants from Japan and across the world to engage in discussions, inquiry, and strategic thinking to explore how to: develop institutional cultures where every individual can thrive and their contributions are valued; instill ownership amongst leaders at all levels to actively foster inclusion and equity; empower those who identify as people from minoritized and underrepresented backgrounds to realize their full leadership potential.

Science communication and outreach, especially to global audiences in English, is taking off in Japan. Japan Scicom Forum brings together communicators, writers, scientists, journalists and select experts from abroad to inspire and boost the cohesion of scicomm in Japan, learn new skills and inform the community with best practices. Keynote talks will reflect on research-media interactions from the perspectives of both scientists and press professionals. Workshops will provide hands-on training to support communicators and scientists working in Japan as they engage in global outreach. Open discussion and networking opportunities are spread over the program. Registration is free and the event will be in English.

This year, OIST is honored to host virtually this event.
