Hitachi diversity through Women’s Leadership Women’s Leadership in Hitachi

Five years ago, the Japan America Society of Southern California (JASSC) created the Women’s Leadership Counts Initiative (WLCI) as a first of its kind initiative to provide a platform for women in business on both sides of the Pacific to engage in professional and leadership development. Each year, the WLC hosts a conference which touches on a topic that is relevant to society today.

The most recent conference theme was “Impact Leadership in the New Normal-VUCA World” and focused on the Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity in this complex world. The Hitachi, Ltd. Los Angeles office served as co-chair of the conference and sponsored a table with Hitachi Automotive Systems Americas, Inc. More than 180 people from the business, academic, non-profit and entrepreneurial world attended the conference which also featured Lynne Humenik, president and CEO of Hitachi Cable America as a panelist.
