The U.S.-Japan Council’s TOMODACHI Emerging Leaders Program is an interactive, educational program designed to support the next generation of Japanese American leaders. In 2015, twelve young Japanese American professionals will be selected to attend the U.S.-Japan Council Annual Conference in Tokyo, Japan. The Conference is a forum for education and networking among the highest levels of leadership in business, public policy, academia, journalism and community organizations. By providing access to senior leaders and education on relevant topics, the program aims to motivate participants to promote strong and positive U.S.-Japan relations in their personal and professional lives.
The TOMODACHI Emerging Leaders Program is currently in its sixth year. Past participants have created an alumni network to ensure that the commitment to strengthening U.S.-Japan relations is maintained. Continued engagement following the Conference is expected.
Selected applicants will receive transportation, hotel accommodations and Conference registration. They will also become U.S.-Japan Council Associate Members with the first year’s membership waived (membership is normally by invitation and nomination).
