Rika-Beppu,-Women-in-Law-Japan,-gender-equity

Rika Beppu has more than 20 years’ experience advising on corporate M&A, joint ventures and commercial projects in London, Hong Kong and Tokyo, most recently with Squire Patton Boggs. But in addition to her legal expertise is her strong commitment to gender equality in her position as founding member and chair of Women in Law Japan.

For Beppu, Women in Law Japan was something that grew organically from her own networks of peers. “With a number of like-minded individuals, we hatched the idea of starting a new network in Japan, which started activities at the beginning of 2016,” she says.

“Now in its third year, we have more than 300 members and supporters who gather for events five times a year. The most exciting development this year is the launch of a mentoring programme across the legal profession in Tokyo, which will match potential mentees and mentors from an organization outside of your own, for a mentoring period of 12 months.”
