On Thursday 17th November, I had the pleasure of hosting over 100 employees from across the globe for the first Hitachi Global Women’s Summit in the UK.
This Summit built on the success of the previous European Summits and welcomed colleagues from the US, India, Taiwan, South Africa, Japan and UAE.
The Summit featured a variety of inspirational keynote speakers including: John O’Brien, Exec VP of Hitachi Consulting, a number of innovative workshops including: Building a Professional Brand with Social Impact, Achieving
your Vision and Career Management; as well as a panel discussion on Social Innovation and Co-creation.
I have to say there was an amazing vibrant atmosphere and a fantastic amount of engagement which fostered a great opportunity to network with other Hitachi Group employees.
We really want to build on the success of the event with all participants promoting and developing local engagement and nurturing talent across Group companies.
This has been a grass roots initiative which is now attracting great support from across Hitachi Group companies and from the CSR team in Japan.
A personal thank you to everyone who has been and continues to be involved. I am truly inspired by you all!
