TOMODACHI MetLife Women's Leadership Program April 12th 2014 at 08:45-13:00 The U.S. Embassy in Tokyo and the TOMODACHI Initiative launched the TOMODACHI MetLife Women's Leadership Program (TMWLP) in Tokyo and Kansai in 2013. This 10-month mentorship program paired highly-motivated Japanese female university students with Japanese female mid-career professionals to encourage networking among a select corps of Japanese women who show promise as Japan's next generation of leaders. Participants attended regular group sessions hosted by the U.S. Embassy and Consulates that provide training in leadership development and financial empowerment and provide opportunities for personal growth and networking. Participants are also invited to attend special seminars with members of government and business leaders. The 2014 TMWLP Annual Conference was the capstone event for the first year of the program.
