About FEW Kansai

FEW was established to support foreign women in Japan, both professionally and socially. Being literally “few” in the world, FEW offers a friendly and supportive atmosphere to meet, network and find like-minded friends. From this idea stems our mission: “To provide a forum for networking, career development, knowledge and information exchange, support and friendship among foreign women living in Kansai."

    Join us in March as photographer Reylia Slaby shares about her life path with art, and how you can use art as a vehicle to overcome fear and failure. She will show her creative process so you can see from start to finish how a feeling can be transformed into an image. From this you will be able to walk away with ideas and techniques that you can thread into your own artistic walk

    • CHIC (Community House and Information Center) on Rokko Island

    If you are interested in a little psychological self-discovery of how your personality type drives your thinking and behavior, join us!

    Our half-day workshop will enable you to increase your self-awareness and adaptability by gaining insights into why you typically do what you do, and how you can modify your actions to develop better communication and collaboration with others.

    This interactive, practical and fun workshop will introduce you to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the world’s most widely used personality assessment. Based on Carl Jung’s theory of personality type, MBTI will give you an immediate understanding of your own preferences of how you interact with the world and how you make decisions. By building your appreciation of the strengths of the different thinking, working and communication styles, you will be able to apply your learnings to better communicate, make decisions, manage change and conflict, thus improve your relationships at work and at home.    


    CHIC is located on Rokko Island, accessible from Island Center station on the Rokko Liner. http://chickobe.com/wordpress/?page_id=79
