About “First Wednesday” forum
First Wednesday will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year and it has held over 220 seminars. The forum has invited a wide range of speakers, including senior executives from Japan’s leading companies and ambassadors.
A First Wednesday sub-committee is adequately placed to launch the Initiative, as dialogues to date have been transformative, where leading business executives from different industries have described their failures, learnings and real experiences.
Through such rich dialogue, challenging business and social issues, such as those raised by the Initiative, can be tackled.
