Connecting People & Ideas to Advance Mutual Interests in U.S.-Asia Relations

In recent years, the Mansfield Foundation has renewed efforts to highlight the important but often underappreciated roles that women have played in policymaking.

Recently, the first two programs in the Maureen Mansfield Women’s Empowerment Series have published policy recommendations in two key areas: a track-1.5 trilateral dialogue on women’s employment and workforce reentry in Japan, South Korea, and the United States; and promoting youth voices in policymaking in the same three countries.

These publications are available for download and will be distributed to participants and policymakers in Tokyo, Seoul, and Washington.
