[Event Report] fabbit and USJC held diversity event


fabbit Inc. (headquartered in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Yasunari Tanaka), which supports start-up companies and operates co-working space, will hold an online event platform with the theme of diversity in the venture industry entitled “Diversity for the Venture Ecosystem – Keys to Thriving, Now More Than Ever (Diversity for the Venture Ecosystem – The Greatest Secret of Success More Than Ever)” online (all in English) on Thursday, July 30 at 9:00 a.m. Japan time.

Rika Nkazawa, CEO and Founder of venture firm Boardseatmeet, is an expert on “what it takes to achieve DE&I (Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity)”. Lisa Shalett, an innovator working in different industries, primarily in the US and Japan had a discussion with Andrew Ogawa and Stéphane E. Fouché.

First, the three panelists explicitly shared their outlooks about the basic principles of diversity, equity, and inclusiveness, how it is demonstrated and its primary roles and functions based on their experiences as foreigners residing in Japan and working for Japanese companies. Furthermore, the need for everyone to feel that they are part of the organization and team, transcend racial boundaries, the importance of listening to others and giving them fair opportunities to freely express their insights, to be inapprehensive and not frightened to share ideas in a more diplomatic manner in spite the possibility that it may create chaos and controversies were all given emphasis. 

They stated that diversity is not just about race and gender, but also expression of diversity and ways of thinking. It is also mentioned that even in an investment situation, it is important to give empathy to other people and listen to their opinions, to understand the way individuals think without preconceived notions, and that diversity is right from the perspective of equality, and that McKinsey and Deloitte’s research has proven to pay off for business.

Viewers addressed questions such as “If you were the only minority, what strategies would you use to raise issues of equity and inclusiveness?”, “Do Japanese’ definition and understanding of diversity differ from Americans’?”, and other related questions, as the speakers shared their experiences and feelings in Japan.
