Announcing the second webinar of the Inclusive Environment series!

Report on the first session in the series, "Building a Winning Team"

Inclusive Environment

In the first session of its Inclusive Environment webinar series, the Global Frontier Network (GFN) invited members of the Negotiation Club, which recently won the world renowned "The Negotiation Challenge," to share their experience of building their team and leading it to success against teams of other prestigious institutions.

The virtual event was held on June 7th over Zoom and was joined by twelve participants, including current students of our school, alumni, professionals from Japan and South Africa, and undergraduate students from Sophia University in Tokyo.

The speakers discussed the importance of recognizing leadership moments for each of their members depending on the type of leader the circumstances required, and how they were able to take advantage of their differing perspectives in order to adapt to any situation. They fielded questions from the participants about the challenge of transitioning from internal to external communication as a team moving from the training and preparation stage to the competition stage.

The webinar was a spirited exploration of the type of team dynamic that achieves results by making the most of every member's abilities.

Information on the next session in the series, "Entrepreneurial Team-Building"!

Whether you are leading a new project or a new organization, the collective entrepreneurial mindset of a cohesive team is essential to bring forth and create changes.

Such an entrepreneurial journey can find its roots at various stages, from laying down new foundations to turning around an existing enterprise. While there is no one-stop solution to building and developing an entrepreneurial team, we can certainly draw inspiration from an impactful case study.

A new startup, ElevEight Tech Inc., was officially incorporated following their participation in the final round of the Japan Business Model Competition, bringing to life their team project. Developing two services, FEMDP & Flash*, we will explore their entrepreneurial journey of building their team, growing from a competition to an actual startup while wading through social and cultural challenges.

*FEMDP: Female Entrepreneur Social Network Platform

About the Inclusive Environment series

The Global Frontier Network (GFN), one of the subnetworks under the Student Representative Council (SRC), is made up of current students who would like to leverage the strength of our School's diversity in order to engage all members of the NUCB community and business professionals with a new webinar series.

Building an Inclusive Environment is essential to any organization that truly wants to be connected to the society, acknowledging, accepting, supporting, respecting and valuing each and every single individual, their unique experiences and perspectives, regardless of differences. This applies at all scales: studies have shown that when Diversity & Inclusion are properly implemented, the performance of the organization is improved across the board with various metrics (productivity, innovation, financial performance, etc.).

About the Global Frontier Network

GFN is a student-led initiative that strives to be the platform that brings together the School's diverse community and forges new connections. With borders and boundaries coming down, it is essential to be mindful of the various differences and nuances tied to everyone's background and experiences.

• To build a strong community that reflects the School's founding vision of embracing the "Frontier Spirit" by leveraging diversity and applying knowledge to inspire others
• To ensure an accessible, inclusive, and stimulating network for all students, regardless of their gender, nationality, ethnic, cultural, social, religious and political backgrounds.

• To energize student mobility between all programs
• To encourage knowledge exchange within and outside the community
• To embrace international exposure, cultural awareness and global business practices
