Symposium

Inclusive Leadership Symposium 2023

Wednesday, February 1, 2023 - 10:00 to Thursday, February 2, 2023 - 16:00
Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University, Auditorium and Conference Center.

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.
