This chapter discusses the first concrete fruits of the US–Japan Working Women's Networks Project as the Japanese participants pilot their own newly created educational programs. On December 24, 2005, the Japanese women held a national meeting in Osaka in preparation for Workshop III. Each of the work groups hosted workshops based on the latest versions of their evolving modules. They also reported on the questions, concerns, and insights that had come up through their process of creation, and on what they needed to get out of Workshop III to move forward. This chapter showcases some of the most innovative ideas introduced by the Japanese women, particularly those relating to knowledge building, empowerment, and organizing. It also describes the various processes of creation established by the women to enable the groups to work together across time and space to develop their new educational programs.
