Abstract
The concept of gender mainstreaming was raised in Beijing Platform for Action in 1995, about 30 years ago. However, it has been difficult for many organizations and government agencies to put this strategy into practice, at least in Japan. This event will show how to apply this strategy to actual practices by overviewing women’s entrepreneurship and the way of supporting it’s starts-up in Japan as examples. We will provide the platform for all participants to exchange their experiences, views, and information on the actual situation in each country in a small-group discussion format.
