78: How This Startup is Getting Japanese Moms Back to Work – Waris
3 days ago
Miwa Tanaka, CEO of Waris, is working to make things better for working women in Japan.
Although things are slowly changing, most Japanese women still must leave the workforce when they have children. The Waris platform helps them get back on track, either as a freelancer or by restarting their career.
We talk about her startup, of course, but we also talk about the difficulties women still face, the kinds of roles they are traditionally placed into, and the traditional employment structures and roles are changing. It’s a optimistic interview and Miwa explains why she believes that corporate Japan truly wants to change things for the better.
It’s a fascinating discussion, and I think you’ll enjoy it.
