Founded in 2006 by Hiroko Tatebe, GOLD is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization. We are dedicated to developing global women leaders and building leadership bridges across the Pacific. We work collaboratively with other global nonprofits that share our mission to advance workforce diversity.

GOLD develops programs to:

Provide leadership-development training experience that inspires and prepares women to assume leadership roles globally

Facilitate the development of a professional network between women leaders across the Pacific to share resources and stimulate strategic partnerships among private and public sectors

Demonstrate the economic necessities and benefits of advancing global workforce diversity and inclusion.

Our current focus is on business and professional women in Japan and the United States. In the future, GOLD will expand its focus to include both business and professional men and women and widen its geographic service area.
