How to Support Multicultural Identities of Girls and Women in Japan
Join us at our May Monthly Meeting to discover how girls and women with multicultural background are defining their identities in the conformist environment of Japan, and how can we support them as they navigate the challenges of cross-cultural life in the country.
SPECIAL ADDITION – BRING YOUR DAUGHTER TO FEW
Bring your daughter(s) along to meet other children & adults with multicultural backgrounds! Light dinner will be served at 6:30 PM, and then the regular portion of the event with networking for all will start at 7 PM.
Most foreigners living in Japan know the deal: people will ask where you are from, and what are you doing in Japan. What if people were asking you these things, even though you are a Japanese national? Constantly having to explain your life, country of origin, or cultural identity is exhausting in the long run, and many of us can relate to this.
Multicultural people living in Japan face these issues on a daily basis – be it a Japanese returnee, a bicultural ‘hafu’, an expat transient or a longtime ‘gaijin’ resident, we all have been through some challenges. Will our complex cultural identities ever be intelligible in homogenizing Japan?
At the May Monthly Meeting, Japanese-American travel writer and ‘hafu’ active Nina Cataldo, and Kirsten O’Connor, who has an extensive background in education both in Britain and Japan, provide some insightful takeaways and multicultural hacks both for parents struggling with raising multicultural children or third culture kids, and educators in international or public schools tasked with supporting young minds with diverse mother-tongues, cultures and/or gender identities.
