The CCI France Japon is pleased to invite you to the Global Diversity Management workshop organized by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Japan (CCCJ) at the Embassy of Canada to Japan, on Tuesday, July 17. You will meet at this event, entitled "The “I” in D&I: Why it matters and how to build it", Annamarie Sasagawa, Director of the Corporate Culture and Literature Departement at Kao Corporation.


Diversity without inclusion is pointless. That’s where there’s the “I” in D&I. But how do you develop and maintain a culture of inclusion in an organization, especially one with members from diverse backgrounds and perspectives? This presentation and workshop will not give you all the answers, but it will present best practices from the science of organizationaldevelopment as well as on-the-ground insights from Annamarie Sasagawa's work in global corporate culture-building at a Japanese company.

After a brief presentation, you will move into workshop mode and try some hands-on techniques to learn how to build a team culture of inclusion.
