ADVISORY: Discussion on Sustainable Growth and Women’s Economic Equality in Japan and the United States
Washington, D.C. — On March 2, the Center for American Progress will host Sandra Black, a former member of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Barack Obama, and leading American and Japanese economic policy experts for a discussion on shared economic challenges for the United States and Japan, including women’s economic equality.
As Japan faces challenges in encouraging economic growth with higher levels of female labor force participation and the United States faces a potential stalling-out of progress in increasing women’s economic equality, how can our two countries learn from each other’s successes and failures? Experts will discuss shared challenges to advancing the mutual goals of expanding economic opportunity and maintaining economic growth.
This event is open to press. To attend, please RSVP here.
