Okutani Heads Women’s World Banking Japan

JapaneseWomanWEGG

Kyoko Okutani leads the Women’s World Banking Japan and has helped more than 1,000 women start a business in male-dominated Japan.

How is she doing this?  She’s tapping into Japanese women’s desire for fulfillment in life and a greater need to create their own destinies.

Okutani, who became the leader of WWB Japan in 2005, attributes the recent interest in starting businesses to changing values in Japanese society and a shift in people’s perspective on life after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan, which left about 18,500 people missing or dead.

Women in Japan, by starting businesses, will help Japan’s economy in the long-run.
