Translating to “hidden retreat,” INN ANN offers a high-end, seasonal Japanese dining experience. Embodying the idea of “Discover Umami” —the fifth savory taste essential to the balance of Japanese cuisine— this exclusive dinner and premium sake pairing will be prepared by INN ANN's Michelin-starred Executive Chef, Mori Onodera.
About Executive Chef Mori Onodera
An esteemed sushi master, Chef Onodera once told Los Angeles Magazine, “Rice is 70%, fish is 30%,” highlighting the importance he places on the quality of the rice he serves. He grows his own rice in partnership with Tamaki Farms. He also meticulously sources fresh fish for his signature sushi, placing a major emphasis on sustainable seafood. Inn Ann meals are served on Chef Onodera’s own handmade pottery, as well as custom Arita-yaki porcelain to further immerse guests into Japanese culture.

There’s a “perfect storm” in leadership today. And it is being fueled by a new generation of leaders. By challenging the status quo, millennials, without even knowing it, are pushing us to “shift” the way we lead.
The so-called “soft” stuff that previous generations of leaders ridiculed as useless, today is key. Neuroscience is proving that intellect, which is one-third of our innate intelligences, is no longer enough. The other two-thirds, the intelligence of our hearts and our bodies, has wisdom that the mind does not. Knowing how to develop those intelligences within ourselves and our employees is critical to engage and thrive in this century. Today if leaders are not willing to make the “shift”, they will not succeed.

“Norman Mineta and His Legacy: An American Story”
PBS Premiere Broadcast of the award winning documentary film.
Monday, May 20, 2019 9:00pm Broadcast
Japan America Society of Southern California is proud to be a Legacy Partner of the Mineta Legacy Project and share Secretary Norman Mineta’s life story and contributions to a national audience.
A son of immigrants and forced into a U.S. World War II concentration camp as a child, Norman Mineta became the first Asian American mayor of a major city (San Jose, California), leading to a distinguished 20-year career in Congress, and was the first Asian American Cabinet member, serving two U.S. Presidents, a Democrat and Republican.
He never forgot his roots or the shame and humiliation he and his family felt during WWII, and led the way for an apology from the U.S. government and redress for Japanese Americans. On September 11, 2001, his leadership as U.S. Secretary of Transportation, would ensure that what happened to Japanese Americans during WWII did not happen to any other group based on ethnicity or religion.
The Mineta Legacy Project captures the life, career and contributions of Secretary Norman Y. Mineta in an hour-long nationally televised documentary and online educational curriculum for high school and college students.

6th Annual Conference

Los Angeles Sparks BIO
Additional Speakers will be announced soon.
Increasing evidence shows that playing sports can transfer into your professional career, helping you become a better and more influential leader.
Playing sports is often considered a male thing, but the expectation that sports can help your career holds for women as well as men. In a 2014 report of women executives by Ernst and Young (EY) Women Athletes Business Network and espnW, 74% said a background in sport can help accelerate a woman’s career. In another report, they found an overwhelming correlation between athletic and business success; 94% of women in the C-suite played sports and 80% of female Fortune executives played competitive sports.
Against the backdrop of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, this year’s conference will address the character traits and attributes that are common among great athletes and business leaders. The speakers will highlight leadership qualities that are both effective on and off the field, and share skills learned in athletics that have a direct workplace crossover.
