Event Types

As a part of our 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 at providing inspiration, learning, and networking opportunities.

Monthly Meetings

FEW monthly meetings are held in English and typically take place on Thursdays evening. 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 into otherwise. When we meet in person we enjoy soft drinks, wine and a delicious finger food buffet.

Special Events

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.

Virtual Lunches

We welcome members and non-members to join our virtual lunch table each month. FEW Japan Virtual Lunches take place each month and are a relaxed opportunity to eat lunch together while talking about a focus subject. Past conversations centered around topics such as connection during the pandemic, self compassion, the Japanese concept of “wabi- sabi” and #BLM.  You can read our recaps here

Members are invited to contact Kyoko Nagano, Special Events Director to collaborate on an opportunity to be a guest host on intriguing topics that they are passionate about.  We wish the Virtual Lunches can contribute to personal development, enlightenment and inspiration.
