【Report】TWCU – JWU Students-Alumnae Event 2016

 Date  :  8th July ,2016

 A gathering for students and alumnae jointly hosted by the Empowerment Center of Tokyo Woman’s Christian University and the JWU Research Institute for Women and Careers was held at the Omotesando Nasic Hall on July 8th, 2016. This was the second such event, following the inaugural one last year.

 First, Marketing Adviser and JWU alumna Keiko Uratani gave a lecture entitled “A Light in the ‘Direction’ Age”. Then the participants enjoyed a buffet-style networking party with drinks and appetizers provided.

 This event was originally devised in the hope that it would help to create alumnae networks after students at the two universities have graduated. We are happy to say that it was attended by about 50 participants and was a great success.

 In feedback given after the event, participants said they were glad of the valuable opportunity to hear the talk by Ms Uratani, and that it was very enjoyable to talk with people from a wide range of age groups.

 The feedback received will help us to plan more of these meaningful events in future. Notices will be posted on the JWU website, and we hope many of you will join us.

 Finally, our sincere thanks go to everyone who contributed to staging this event.
