Impact and the implications
4:30-5:30pm NZT, Wednesday 21 July 2021
In North Asia and likely around the world, the pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on women professionally and personally. Our speakers will explore the factors behind these impacts and their implications, with a focus on Japan and New Zealand.
Our speakers are: Catherine O’Connell, Principal of Catherine O’Connell Law and Vice Chair of the Australian & New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Japan; Misa Kitaoka, Education NZ’s Director of Education for Japan; and Jennifer Curtin, Professor of Politics and Director of the Public Policy Institute at the University of Auckland. Catherine and Misa will be zooming in to us from Tokyo.
The event will be moderated by North Asia CAPE Programme Manager Laura Bunting.
