Embassy of Japan invites the first Asian female astronaut Dr. Mukai to Thailand to speak to the young generation of women with the view to encourage them to pursue education, career and leadership in traditionally male dominated areas such as Science and Technology. Following the keynote lecture by Dr. Mukai, we create a panel consisting of women leaders to discuss the challenges that women face and how we can possibly overcome, and what they can share to nurture women leaders. We also invite young female innovators (especially in the space related fields) to inspire their own generation.
