International Symposium

“Global Women’s Leadership: Proposals from Asia” (Friday, Feb 18, 2022)
Series: Women's Leadership in Asia 4

Almost seven years ago, the Ochanomizu University established the Research Organization for the Promotion of Global Women’s Leadership (GWL) in April 2015. Aimed at presenting our achievements in research and educational activities since 2015, we are hosting an international symposium entitled “Global Women’s Leadership: Proposals from Asia.” Coincidentally, this is the last symposium in the 2021 symposia series of “Women’s Leadership in Asia.” This symposium comprises presentations of the educational programs and research findings by the scholars belonging to the Institute for Global Leadership (IGL) and the Institute for Gender Studies (IGS), both housed under the GWL. Based on these findings, we will discuss women’s leadership in Asia from global and diverse perspectives. In addition to those scholarly debates, we will hear perspectives on women’s leadership from women leaders in Asia, who are Ochanomizu graduates active on the global stage.

Co-organized by the IGL and the IGS, this symposium will offer participants the opportunity to learn through stimulating discourses and exploratory debates that criticize the celebration of the superficial diversification of leadership. The symposium attempts to transcend gender stereotypes and undertakes the university’s aim of developing future women leaders. We hope you will join our discussions to develop the concepts of women’s leadership.

<ONLINE> International Symposium, Institute for Global Leadership (Dec 23, 2022)

International Symposium

“Climbing up the Glass Cliff: Another Invisible Barrier Behind the Glass Ceiling?” (Friday, December 23, 2022)

Abstract:
Although the number of women in leadership positions in Japan is increasing, especially with the efforts of the government to realize a society where men and women alike take on leadership roles, the ratio of women in the top management in Japan is negligible compared with other countries.

Today, many of us are familiar with the concept of the glass ceiling, which are invisible barriers that keep women from leadership positions. In contrast, we witness talented women leaders worldwide in a time of crisis, proving that women can lead organizations as effectively as men.

In the early 2000s, Professors Michelle Ryan and Alex Haslam explored the phenomenon that women are more likely to be selected to top management during times of crisis or downturn. This appointment may be unstable, and the risk of failure is higher. They named this phenomenon “the glass cliff.” Evidently, this type of leadership environment is unsuitable for fostering female leaders. The Institute for Global Leadership, Ochanomizu University, takes the opportunity to explore this subject with distinguished researchers in this field. By discussing the underlying fundamental problems of the glass cliff and prospects for the strategy to overcome it, we aim to contribute to women’s leadership. We invite you to join this inspiring discussion where the focus will be on women’s leadership education.

  • Venue: Zoom Webinar and Offline (Inter-Faculty Building 2-201)

Michelle Ryan is a Professor of Social and Organisational Psychology and the inaugural Director of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at the Australian National University. She recently completed a European Research Council Consolidator Grant to investigate how context constrains women’s careers choices. With Alex Haslam, she has uncovered the phenomenon of the glass cliff, whereby women (and members of other minority groups) are more likely to be placed in leadership positions that are risky or precarious. Research into the glass cliff was named by the New York Times as one of the top 100 ideas that shaped 2008, and in 2016 the term “the glass cliff” was shortlisted as Word of the Year by the Oxford English Dictionary.

■Midori Kokubo, Professor, Ritsumeikan University
Midodri Kokubo is a dean and a professor of the Graduate School of Business Administration and College of Business Administration at Ritsumeikan University. She has researched the effects of leadership behavior in high-uncertainty environments, part-time workers’ job attitudes, and gender differences in students’ choice of career. Recently she has investigated the leadership behavior in crisis, in relation to which she has developed an interest in the phenomenon of the glass cliff and conducted experiments.

■Helen Peterson, Professor, Örebro University
Helen Peterson received her Ph.D. in sociology in 2005, from Uppsala University, Sweden. She is currently a professor in sociology at Örebro University, Sweden. Peterson has researched the Swedish higher education sector and the European science and innovation sector through a gendered lens for over 10 years. Her focus has been on academic management and leadership, women’s careers in male-dominated fields, gender mainstreaming and policy implementation.

<ONLINE> International Symposium, Institute for Global Leadership (Dec 16, 2021)

“Challenges and Key Empowerment Strategies for Women Leaders in India and Indonesia” (Thursday, December 16, 2021)

Out of 156 countries, the rank of gender gap report for Indonesia is 101st, for Japan is 120th and for India is 140th (World Economic Forum, 2021), indicating there are many challenges to improve women’s participation in these countries. Women are facing many difficulties to embrace their identity as leaders and to gain acceptance as leaders by others. While many has addressed this issue, less people realize that the development of identity as leaders start early in life, where women learn to appreciate their identities as leaders and as caregivers (as a wife and/or a mother).  This symposium is going to present research findings in India and Indonesia related to challenges and key empowerment strategies for the development of women leaders in those two big countries, with many diversities within each country.  The role of family (especially a father), culture, education and mentor will be specifically discussed.

<ONLINE> International Symposium (Nov 15, 2021)

International Symposium

“Leadership for All: Theory and Action to Foster Gender Equality” (Monday, Nov 15, 2021)
Series: Women's Leadership in Asia 1

The general elections in Japan in October 2021 must elicit in-depth discussions on gender equality and women’s leadership in politics. The current proportion of women in Japan’s House of Representatives is only 10%, even after more than seven decades have passed since universal suffrage was established. Why is the representation of women in the Japanese Diet so small? This gender gap in number reveals the existence of a gender gap in politics in a broader context. What barriers prevent the participation of women participation in Japanese politics? What must be accomplished to make women more interested and involved in politics? This symposium will discuss women’s leadership in politics from a global perspective, beginning with an academic discussion on the gender gap in political participation in the UK.

This symposium is co-organized by the Institute for Global Leadership (IGL) and the Institute for Gender Studies (IGS) at Ochanomizu University. It will offer participants the opportunity of learning through stimulating discourses and exploratory debates that criticize the celebration of the superficial diversification of leadership. The symposium will attempt to transcend gender stereotypes and undertake the university’s aim to develop future women leaders. We hope you will join our discussions to develop the concepts of leadership.

“Understanding women's political participation: a case study of the United Kingdom”
Rosie Campbell

In most established democracies women's participation in politics has increased over the decades that have followed suffrage, but gender gaps remain. Women's electoral turnout has largely caught up with men's and in some contexts overtaken it. However, women remain less likely to be actively interested and engaged in politics, less likely to be party members, and less often stand for political office, although again many of these differences have diminished over time. Alongside this gradual increase in women's political participation, we have seen gender gaps in party support emerge with women in many high-income countries shifting to the left of men. In this paper I explore the barriers and enablers to women's political participation in the UK within in the context of the global literature. I ask whether increasingly hostile online political environments are likely to supress women's participation or whether distinct gendered political values are emerging that support women's political activity.

<ONLINE> International Symposium, Institute for Global Leadership (June 26, 2021)

“Cross-Cultural Diversity in Leadership Styles” (Saturday, June 26, 2021)

In what ways can we recognize diversity in leadership styles within our globalizing society, where we cannot neglect the linguistic, cultural and individual differences in our daily lives? How can we recognize such diversity in meaningful ways, beyond a superficial celebration of the diversity of leaders and oversimplified and stereotyped images of leaders and leadership?

This symposium, hosted by the Institute for Global Leadership at Ochanomizu University, provides a forum to discuss these issues, focusing on cross-cultural diversity in leadership styles. 

Our speakers are: Professor Doris Schedlitzki, a specialist on leadership research and whose recent work includes studies on the ways of leading in non-anglophone countries; Professor/President Cecilia Gascon, current President of Bulacan State University and former President of the Southern Luzon State University, who holds more than 10 years of experience as a University President in the Philippines; and Professor Makoto Kobayashi, Director of the Institute for Global Leadership at Ochanomizu University.

This symposium constitutes part of our Institute's overarching aim to explore a framework for discussing and analyzing leadership issues within the Asian context. Bringing together insights on female leadership research and practice from Asia as well as elsewhere, our aim is to foster learning and stimulate conversations about how to advance our shared mission - to empower female leaders in the Asian context.

International Symposium, Institute for Global Leadership(December 19, 2020)

“Women’s Leadership and its Role for SDGs: Approaches from Asian Civil Society and International Education”(December 19, 2020)

sympo20201219
PDF

Today, leadership matters worldwide. More than before, global crises such as epidemics, environmental problems, and social division have indicated importance of thinking about eminent leadership. On the other hand, SDGs have contributed to the future development of the global community. Regardless of the degree of a country’s development, each nation stands at the starting line in discussing the role of women’s leadership and quality education in overcoming problems associated with the global crises. However, the concept of women’s leadership is not yet well established. For this international symposium, we will examine how women’s leadership is conceptualized, developed, and put into practice, and how it needs to be modified. The important role that female leaders play in various social issues where female leadership is truly needed in such Asian countries as Thailand, the Philippines, South Korea, and Japan can offer new insights for Asian women’s leadership.

January 12, 2019 International Symposium “Women’s Global Leadership from Gender Perspectives”

20190112symposium_flyer
PDF

The ideal model of leadership cannot be fixed a priori. Rather, individuals need to find their own leadership models in the process of self-discovery. The accumulation and analysis of that individual practice of trial and error may lead to the development of an advanced leadership theory, and the university should be the locus of this scholarly work. To make progress in the research on women’s global leadership, Ochanomizu University has formed partnerships with Ewha Womans University and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, which are well known for their pioneering achievement of the promotion of women leaders. This symposium aims to build a foundation for the intellectual exploration and the praxis of the promotion of women’s global leadership. Different cultural backgrounds may bring about different issues and different approaches to solve the issues. Sharing the experiences of these universities offers an opportunity to learn from each other. Cooperation across cultural and ideological lines is essential to realize a more rewarding world in this age of globalization. A new image of a global society can be created by linking disparate people in synchronicity. Being sensitive to such a contextual change should make this symposium a forum for reframing the ever-developing discussion on women’s leadership.

Date and Time: Saturday, January 12, 2019  13:30 - 17:00(open at 13:00)
Venue: Room 201 Inter-faculty Building 2, Ochanomizu University
Audience: Open to the public (Prior registration required)

Part 1: University Presidents’ Speeches 13:30-14:40
“Gender Equality and Women’s Leadership”
Ochanomizu University has commenced collaborative research projects in the field of gender and women’s leadership with Ewha Womans University and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, on the basis of their respective achievements in research and education. The presidents’ speeches intend to introduce the various initiatives undertaken in their universities for the promotion of women leaders, which are based on the gender perspectives of each of their societies, and to discuss the current issues they face.

・President KIM Heisook (Ewha Womans University)
・Vice President Anne BORG (Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU))
・President MUROFUSHI Kimiko (Ochanomizu Univerisity)

Part 2: Panel Discussion 14:55-17:00
“Women’s Global Leadership: Diversity and Network”
Researchers from South Korea, Vietnam, and Japan explore: How does the gender perspective in their society influence the requirement to or ideals of women leaders? How can we create the idea of women’s global leadership? How can we develop an international network for the promotion of women leaders? We would like to invite the audience to a multifaceted and wide-ranging discussion on women’s global leader
