Yuka Nagashima

President, Astia (Fri, Stage 2)

Yuka Nagashima, president of Astia, has walked that walk. She has been forging her own path since she left Japan alone as a 11-year-old.

She developed a high-school integrative science curriculum to ensure more girls took physics. She co-founded two tech companies with a diverse team, after which she led the State of Hawaii’s tech initiative by bringing together innovators from different industries and walks of life.
