Human Resource managers play a critical role in achieving an organization’s vision for the future.

I am sure this Global HR summit will help you learn and implement key success factors for creating a better workplace.

Sakura Golf, well known for its "Mission as a Pioneer," is a pioneer in the golf membership industry. Since starting my own business at age 26, I have been blazing a trail, and this year marks the 53rd anniversary. I sincerely agree with the purpose of the Global HR Conference held for the first time in Japan. I hope it will empower more women to play an active role.          ~Yaeko Sagawa~

MUFG is a global company with many businesses and talents both in and outside Japan. MUFG senior management highly value the Human Resource business partnering role in its approach to active talent management to drive its success in all markets.

It's great to have a global HR conference in Japan.  It's an opportunity to share modern HR practices and hopefully excite and ignite the HR leaders of tomorrow's businesses.



HR is Awesome!

Why are HR education and qualifications important? This is because we are keenly aware that HR requires professional expertise. 

Unfortunately, in my experience, I have not encountered HR professionals with HR expertise. I've known for a long time that HR qualifications are essential for HR professionals in the United States. If there is no HR qualification in Japan, make it for Japan, I started my action in 2019. And if there is an organization in the U.S. that already provides world-class HR training and qualifications, let’s work it together. After constant negotiations with SHRM for over 2 years, SHRM and I agreed to develop SHRM ESSENTIALS in the Human Resources program in Japanese and to provide SHRM credentials in Japan.  HRAI (Human Resource Accreditation Institute) has been providing SHRM ESSENTIALS in the Human Resources program and SHRM credentials in Japan since January 2021.

In 2023, I will be pleased to host the first global HR conference in Japan, “23 Global HR Conference in Tokyo,” and have SHRM as the knowledge partner. I welcome everyone involved in management agendas, including management strategy, Human capital strategy, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I), to this memorable first Global HR Conference in Japan.
