EVENT: Female Pioneers in Law in Japan - For Empowering Women (FEW) Panel

"At FEW’s monthly meeting in April 2018, we heard from two dynamic women working in law in Tokyo: Naoko Matsuzaki, Director, International Anti-Corruption and Global Intelligence for PwC Japan’s Forensic Services Group, and Catherine O’Connell, Founder and Principal of Catherine O’Connell Law and the first foreign female to set up as a sole legal practitioner in Tokyo"

It was my absolute pleasure to speak at FEW on this Panel and talk about my experiences practicing law in New Zealand, London and Japan. See the recap of the event here: http://fewjapan.com/april-2018-monthly-meeting-recap-female-pioneers-in-law-in-japan/ 

**About FEW Japan**
For Empowering Women (FEW) in Japan is an exceptionally active and ever-growing Tokyo-based non-profit business and social networking organization whose mission is to “enable internationally-minded women in Japan to achieve their full professional and personal potential.” Originally standing for “Foreign Executive Women”, who were literally “few” when the organization was founded in 1981 by two foreign female entrepreneurs,  FEW has evolved tremendously over its almost 35-year history and has empowered thousands of women in and outside of Japan. FEW aspires to be the “GO-TO place for personal and professional learning and connection,” hosting regular monthly meetings, normally on the second Thursday of the month.  There is time for networking at each event and special events offer more opportunities to connect, learn and have fun. http://fewjapan.com
