This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Women in many other nations are able to balance work and home, while women in Japan are often forced to choose. One solution Kumi Sato discusses is to allow Japanese women the ability to sponsor and hire domestic workers from abroad. If the Japanese government were serious about getting women back to work or continue their careers, Kumi suggests re-visiting regulations to provide Japanese women options for nannies, domestic helpers, and elderly care.

In 1999, Kumi Sato was the founder of womenjapan.com, one of the first websites to empower women. Womenjapan.com K.K., was sold to Softbank Investments in 2001. In 2012, the Harvard Business School Club of Japan named Kumi "Business Stateswoman of the Year". In 2011, she won the "Outstanding Individual Achievement" honor at the Asia-Pacific SABRE Awards.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
