Presenter Profile

Jackie F. Steele (PhD Political Science) is Associate Professor (Graduate School of Law, Nagoya University), co-founder of the Research Network on Gender and Diversity in Political Representation in Japan (GDRep), Program Director or For Empowering Women (FEW) Japan (Kanto), and most recently, founder of en-joi, D&I Consulting and Training.

A trilingual political scientist and longtime Japan resident (since 1997) with expertise in diversity, gender equality, inclusive leadership and democratic citizenship, Jackie is passionate about co-creating purpose-led organizations that integrate diversity, solidarity, and innovation into the core values and practices of team-building and decision-making.

Jackie believes that “Diversity rocks and inclusion matters.” Her literacy-and-praxis-building approach equips D&I thought leaders and stakeholders with a language and vision of inclusion enriched by academic expertise, international best practices, and two decades of action-based research on intersectional identities of diverse men and women in Japan and North America.


The South African Chamber of Commerce in Japan was established in 2008 to promote trade and commerce as well as enhance friendship and cultural understanding between the two nations. The SACCJ strives to be a reliable first point of contact for businesses and individuals related to South Africa in Japan, and to provide our members with access to a wealth of information and contacts to assist in their projects, ventures and businesses.
