Empowered JAPAN
Urgent Webinars to provide practical knowledge for Teleworking & Online Education

Empowered JAPAN Executive Steering Committee was established in 2018, “To realize a world where everyone can
work and learn, from anywhere, at anytime.” To promote the true value of workstyle innovation including telework, the committee has been
coordinating symposiums in both Tokyo and regional cities. And in collaboration with various local governments, Microsoft, and partners,
the committee has been serving as an advisor to provide telework training for both corporate and individuals.

In response to the spread of infection of corona virus (COVID-19) and the government announcement on February 25, 2020,which included the request to citizens to telework, the steering committee made the decision to launch a series of free webinars starting from March 17, 2020, to provide practical information for individuals and organizations across the nation, to telework and/or practice online education.

Message from the Empowered JAPAN Executive Steering Committee

Empowered JAPAN Executive Steering Committee

Since 2018, we have been leveraging telework to solve various challenges. In response to the spread of corona virus, we made our decision to urgently share our learning assets to individuals and organizations through series of free webinars. We would like to express our sincere appreciations to the speakers who we have been collaborating,and who kindly accepted to support this urgent initiative. We would like to emphasize, that telework is not only a tool to fight against the spread of corona virus. Telework is a means to solve various societal challenges which Japan is facing. Being able to telework can contribute to improve work-life-balance, for those who are taking care of their young children and/or elderly, people who are facing challenges, and people who are reskilling for self development purposes. We wish that the contents within these webinars will contribute to the deployment of teleworking, we wish to see the end of corona virus as soon as possible. And finally, we wish to turn this to an opportunity to build a vibrant Japan for the future.
(Shigeru Matsumura, Chair of Executive Steering Committee)

We would like to express our deep appreciations to the speakers, supporting partners, local governments, and volunteer staffs who have been supporting to bring this project together in such a short timeframe. As a response to the governmental request to the citizens to “telework” (work from home, etc. to avoid the spread of virus), we have collected the learning assets from both the executive committee and Microsoft, and categorized them into “Mindset and Communication” “IT tools and environment” “System (labor work, subsidy, internal rules and remote working manuals))” “Learning from case studies companies” and “Contents for government, healthcare, and educational institutions.” Via collaboration with various speakers and partners, and by fully leveraging technology ourselves, we will deliver the practical contents not only to greater Tokyo region but to the regions across Japan. Finally, regarding the operation of these webinars, not only the audience, but also the speaker and operational staffs will not assemble to one physical location. The webinars will be executed by full telework operations, to be a role model ourselves. We wish to contribute to Japan and the world, to overcome this challenge as soon as possible, and will try our very best to realize a world where everyone can work and learn, from anywhere, at anytime.

    澤氏は新型コロナウイルスにより世界のリセットボタンが押された今、各個人がマインドセットをアップデートし未来志向になることの必要性を呼びかけた。まず初めに、この機に見直すべきマインドセットを、シリコンバレーの考え方を例に説いた。次に、日本の経済力凋落を改善する一歩として、仕事における報告・連絡・相談を例に用いて、過去志向から未来志向への転換を求めた。また、イノベーションの真の意味を説明し、AI等のツールの利用本質である「時間のセーブ機能」を再確認した。最後に、質疑応答で行動にこだわることの重要性を力説した。
