The Dream Collective officially announced the second edition in our “Together, She…” book series with the first three partners – salesforce, Adobe and Morgan Stanley. The next three partners to be announced were Amundi, Bosch and Deloitte.
With such an impressive lineup, it’s difficult to imagine that the next announcement is equally as exciting!
The three new partners coming together to write the next chapter in Japan’s gender equality journey are… Hilti, Nissan and Philip Morris.
About the project
The Dream Collective are uniting business leaders, KOL’s and advocates of change from some of Japan’s most established brands to contribute to our book to be released in 2021 “Together, She…”.
The book will contain personal stories from individuals and organisations on how they empowered, mentored, sponsored or supported women in their lives to reach their full potential and collectively sponsor a minimum of 100 high-potential young professional women into leadership development training.
In light of the coronavirus pandemic and the significant shifts in the corporate landscape in Japan, the book will focus on stories around how participating businesses:
- Created innovation from a crisis and how that contributed to female advancement.
- Showed resilience in their careers and leadership.
- Bounced back from a difficult time / problem.
- Created an environment for women to progress forward to their moonshot vision.
