- How we can support Japan's Relief Effort -
Keizai Society offers its condolences and prayers for the victims and offers our support to those affected by the disastrous earthquake and tsunami that stuck the northern coast of Japan on March 11, 2011.
Given the magnitude of this devastation, Keizai Society has decided to postpone the planned program to a future date. Instead, we would like to offer our venue this Thursday as a place for all of us to come together and share our stories. This event shall be offered free of charge and will be the kick-off event of our fundraising effort for disaster relief.
Our originally planned panel for the Entrepreneurship topic, Robert Eberhart, Kenji Kushida, and Lisa Katayama will be available for interactive sessions with you entitled “Japan Earthquake/Tsunami Tragedy and how we can support Japan as Keizai Society and as a member of US-Japan community.” We are also planning to join together in a silent prayer for the victims of this tragedy. We hope sharing your stories with other members will help you get through these difficult times and comfort you, as well as give you strength and hope. Let’s discuss constructive ideas on how to support Japan at this time.
*** The event that was scheduled on March 17, 2011 "Re-examining the State of Japanese Entrepreneurship" is postponed.
