TEDxSapporoWomen 2015 will take place on Saturday, May 30, at the Interxcross Creative Center. The upcoming event consists of two parts: a video viewing session that is delivered from TEDWomen 2015 held in Monterey and a live speech session given by women speakers in Japanese who are actively working in Hokkaido.
We are happy to annouce the two local speakers who will be on stage in this session!
One is Ms. Motoko Yamada who has been working as a TV director. she was a director of the TV program, “Going with Ishii-chan!” which features universal design as theme. Since it had been broadcasted every Thursday for 13 years, there might be many people who have watched it. This program allowed her to interview a large number of people. What kind of idea has she gotten through the interaction with people she interviewed?
Another speaker is Ms. Kumiko Hayasaka, a chairperson of Cobalt Cross Kamuy-mintar, a non-profit organization. Since the Great East Japan Earthquake hit in 2011, she has been engaged to reconstruction assistance activities. In order to solve the various problems in the affected areas, it is necessary to put yourself in the other person’s shoes with a broader view. What is important for support? What does support mean? What drives her to help people while bustling about between Hokkaido and Miyagi prefectures?
We are hoping to see you there to learn about “Momentum” of these two women!
