2nd International Conference on Gender Research, 11-12 April 2019 in Italy

The International Conference on Gender Research (ICGR) 2019 is taking place on 11 – 12 April 2019 at Roma Tre University, Italy

Despite some advances being made in the area, topics related to gender research remain pertinent and are gaining momentum in a changing society. It is thus important to empower and to develop research on specific gender topics, in order to acquire a clearer understanding and to obtain important insights.

Now in its second year the International Conference on Gender Research intends to be established in the cutting edge of gender research and we welcome everyone researching in this area to present their work and to the scientific community.

ICGR 2019 is being held at Roma Tre University, Italy on 11-12 April and the Conference Chair is Professor Paola Paoloni.

WICI Symposium 2018 at WASEDA University on 30 Nov. 2018

WICI Symposium 2018 at WASEDA University
on 30 November 2018

The “2018 WICI symposium” on Friday November 30, 2018 aims to offer opportunities to look back at the achievements by WICI during 10 years and explore further agendas through discussions among presenters and participants. In other words, in the light of the situation where reportedly, at least over 400 hundred listed companies make public integrated report, we consider the symposium as an opportunity to ensure the strategy for companies and organizations—focusing on relations with the society while confirming their raisons d’être, to further employ integrated reporting as the tools of communications with stakeholders to provide clear understandings of the value creation stories to enhance the processes for value creation.
