Palette articles are written by the students of "global business seminar" course  (instructor: Prof. Akiko Imai),  Business Design Department,  Showa Women’s University. Students who are interested in social issues in Japan operate this website.
We'd like young people in overseas to know the real situation of Japan through the perspectives of same generation in Japan to build the better world together.
Besides web operation, we organize the events relating to social issues. In 2020, we held the symposium with the Uprizine editorial team of the Temple University of Japan. The title was "Comfort in Crisis: COVID-19 and Student Life" and we discussed about widening gap, countermeasures by governments, online education and net literacy, and diversity and discrimination surrounding COVID turmoil.
In 2021, we are working with students from the University of Colorado, Boulder- Leeds School of  Business for online presentation competition. On the theme of "Building the New Normal in the Interconnected Economy", we proceed with discussions and investigations.
