As part efforts to realize our mission of empowering women to achieve their full professional and personal potential, FEW caters to the diverse interests of its members and the wider community by offering an extensive range of events aimed and providing inspiration, learning, and networking opportunities.
FEW monthly meetings are held in English and typically take place on the second Thursday of the month (excl. August). They are a great opportunity to learn from women leaders and experts in various fields as well as each other, and meet and network with women you may not run in to otherwise. We also have time for members to introduce themselves and share with the group their asks and offers. All this while enjoying soft drinks, wine and a delicious fingerfood buffet from Kiwi Kitchen.

Normally organized on a monthly basis, FEW special events provide opportunities to socialize and enhance networking among FEW members and other women in and around Tokyo. Special events may include financial planning seminars, training workshops, social gatherings or cultural visits.
Mid-Week Lunch Mixer
As an extension of our special events programs, FEW invites members and friends to come along and enjoy lunch over stimulating conversation in the last week of each month. The lunch is a great chance to connect and share stories and ideas with women from various professions in the middle of a busy working week!
Women’s Start-Up Club
FEW Women’s Start-up Club is a small group that meets once every two months to discuss issues, insights and successes of women running or planning to run their own businesses in Japan. All women are welcome, whether you have just started your own business, have been running one for years, want to start one or just want to be inspired by getting together with energetic women!

As part of its Community Services activities, FEW arranges charity events which in the past have included cherry blossom picnics, bootcamps, book swaps and concerts.
