It takes a village to support Canadian women entrepreneurs! Last December, our CEO Josephine Yam had the pleasure of chatting with Sara Wilshaw, ADM and Chief Trade Commissioner, Global Affairs Canada, and Christine Nakamura, VP of the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, at the official residence of His Excellency Ian G. McKay, Ambassador of Canada to Japan, in Tokyo during the Second Canadian Women-only Business Mission to Japan.
As a Canadian woman entrepreneur, Josephine is deeply grateful for ADM Sara Wilshaw’s inspirational leadership to promote international trade diversification and advance women’s economic empowerment.
Thanks a ton to the indefatigable Christine Nakamura and her dynamic team who were phenomenal in organizing and running a flawless Japan trade mission, as they always have with other missions. Shepherding 35 women tech entrepreneurs is not easy!
Thanks also to the fantastic Commissioners of the Trade Commissioners Service and Global Affairs folks for their invaluable support in helping Skills4Good AI scale globally!
