Manage episode 272132824 series 2632563
On this episode of the Small Business Japan Podcast I talk with Chie Schuller about about cultivating corporate cultures that embody both US and Japanese values as well as embracing our differences and diversity.
Chie was born and raised in Ishinomaki, Miyagi, Japan. Even though she grew up in a small rural community, she was always curious about other countries and cultures. She came to the US as an exchange student when she was a senior in high school. After graduating Japanese and American high schools, she continued her college education in US. She has been working for a Japanese company in Ohio for the past 15 years. She is a wife and mother of two kids and one Shiba-inu.
As a leader in international relations and cross-cultural engagement with a focus on US-Japan relations she’s spent over a decade at THK Manufacturing of America breaking down barriers and serving as a catalyst for international collaboration.
