Women, Technology & Entrepreneurship in Japan

Thursday, May 14, 2009

Amidst a serious global economic downturn, women are emerging as critical players in business innovation in Japan. The recession of the 1990’s was followed by expansive growth in the digital life of Japanese citizens, providing a foundation for businesses and business models arising from new areas within the socio-economic infrastructure of Japan. This has significantly changed Japan’s entrepreneurial environment, fostering the rise of women entrepreneurs. Join our lunchtime discussion group as Dr. Charla Griffy-Brown explores the ongoing transformation of social and institutional logic in Japan at the edge of the new digital frontier.

Charla Griffy-Brown, Ph.D., is currently an Associate Professor of Information Systems and Technology Management and holds the Denny Endowed Chair at Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business and Management. Dr. Griffy-Brown’s primary areas of research are information systems and business innovation, particularly in the in the Asia-Pacific. She has written extensively on technology and business development in Japan. With her co-author, Vinnie Jauhari, she recently published a book of global case studies entitled, Women, Technology and Entrepreneurship.
