Japan Local Chapter Meeting
The Japan Local Chapter meeting is scheduled for May 6, 2021, 19:00-20:15 JST.
Infrastructure Masons Overview
Infrastructure Masons (iMasons) is a global, non-profit, professional association of people motivated to make a better-connected world for everyone.
The iMasons vision is to Unite the Builders of the Digital Age by enabling our global membership to Connect, Grow, and Give Back. We are guided by an Advisory Council of global leaders who manage the largest digital infrastructure portfolios in the world. Our four strategic industry priorities are to – enhance Education opportunities, champion Diversity & Inclusion, promote Innovation and Technical Excellence, and inspire Sustainability – are embodied by our members and endorsed by our partners.
Whenever we meet, we leave our companies at the door.
iMasons was established in 2016 on the West coast USA. In order to scale, and deliver the platform globally, iMasons is establishing Local or Regional Chapters.
There are issues that face the industry that can be better addressed collectively – and iMasons is the platform to coordinate and focus this effort. Global iMasons initiatives, such as bridging the talent gap and addressing diversity and inclusion can be more effectively executed regionally by iMasons who understand the dynamics of that region.
Japan Local Chapter – April 22nd Virtual Meeting
The meeting will commence with an introduction to the iMasons and an explanation of the work we do. We’ll share experiences from other Chapters and have an open discussion on what the Japan Chapter could practically and realistically achieve by working together, leaving our companies at the door, that couldn’t be achieved individually.
