Annie Chang, Founder, Women in Technology Japan

I met Annie the week I moved to Japan. She was full of energy as she described how Tokyo was a "dynamic" city, how she moved here from Taichung, Taiwan, in 1981, and later built her own company recruiting candidates for senior-level positions in IT companies mainly in Japan, and also Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Two years ago, Annie, a mother of two and running her own company, founded Women in Technology Japan (WITJ) to build "a community for professional IT women to network with like-minded women of all nationalities, exchange ideas, share experiences, and improve work-life balance" in Japan. 

When Annie commissioned me for her portraits, we decided the Mori Garden at Roppongi Hills would be the perfect backdrop, as it's international, in her neighborhood, where she enjoys going running and bike riding, and a quick walk to her office in Azabu-jūban. アニーがウェブやソーシャル•メディアでのリーチを高めるために新しいプロフィールの写真をいらいしました。

View more of Annie's images live on her LinkedIn and Twitter. I wrote about and documented our Women in Technology Japan kickoff dinner here and you can follow updates on the Women in Technology Japan Facebook page.
