Vice President Shimada Greeted Everyone Saying, “Let’s Become a Group That Leads the Way, Starting with What We Can Do About Social Issues”

The conference began with Akira Shimada, Senior Executive Vice President and Representative Member of the Board, giving opening remarks, in which he reflected on how NTT Group initially became conscious of CSR and, after explaining that the group’s vision and mission were defined in the previous year, he rallied employees, saying, “However, we must evolve further.”

Touching on the 17 goals of the SDGs, he closed the address saying, “To date we have been considering solutions based on the skills and technology we have, but now we have to break away from this and become a bold group that thinks about what we can do to solve social issues, and if such a solution does not yet exist, we must create it.”

Lecture by an Expert: Companies Should Take the Lead in Thinking about the Future of the World

This time we had Yoko Ishikura, Professor Emeritus at Hitotsubashi University, lecture about what the role of leaders will be as the world faces new issues. Professor Ishikura discussed topics such as what is needed to become a leader, and how companies should become leaders who consider the future of the world, saying, “Currently the world is being faced with a range of social issues but politicians are no longer thinking globally.”
