Join this unique opportunity to meet and hear from top female athletes from Japan and learn about the connection between Women, Sports and Leadership.
Increasing evidence shows that skills gained through sports can be transferred to a professional career, leveraged to become a better and more influential leader. EY research shows that 94% of women in the C-Suite have participated in sports and that there is a strong correlation between sports, leadership, and career success.
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games highlights an opportunity for companies to consider a wider diverse pool of under-tapped talent. The EY Women Athletes Business Network (WABN) brings this talent together and presents best practices for how company diversity and inclusion efforts can also be advanced.
At this event, being held at the Tokyo American Club—home of the US Olympic Committee’s Tokyo 2020 USA House—EY will share new Japan and global insights and thought leadership on women athletes and host a panel discussion with elite women athletes. The athletes will share their journey, needs and challenges faces when transitioning from sports to a second career in business or entrepreneurship. During the reception current and retired top athletes will demonstrate their business pitch and share their career goals in a business matching forum.
Japanese–English interpretation will be provided.
The EY Japan Women Athletes Business Network (WABN) is an external network of professionals and athletes. The goal of WABN is to address the needs of business to find diverse talent and to support women athletes in adapting their leadership skills outside of sports. This positive-impact network is well-known for its signature mentorship.
