Japanese Women in Computing

Hikari Tamura

Hikari co-founded Japanese Women in Computing in 2017 along with other JWiC leaders. When she attended GHC for the first time in 2016, she found it difficult to find other attendees from Japan; there were a very limited number of Japanese attendees compare to those from other countries. Hikari was inspired by the energy of people who attended GHC and wanted to share this great experience with others in Japan. JWiC aims to increase the number of Japanese attendees at GHC and encourage more Japanese women to join their Facebook group to make a history together.
