Atsuko Toko Fish
Atsuko Toko Fish, a first generation Japanese American, is committed to innovation and social change in the U.S. and Japan, especially in the areas of empowering women and promoting understanding between the two cultures. In 2005, Atsuko founded the Japanese Women’s Leadership Initiative, an executive program that prepares Japanese women to become non-profit leaders and agents for social change. In the wake of the March 2011 disaster in Japan, she created the Japanese Disaster Relief Fund-Boston, which raised nearly $1 million and provided 24 grants to 19 organizations.
