She's one of the co-founders of Women in Journalism in Japan with a mission to spread diversity in newsrooms across the country and besides all of that she's also a mom of three children.

Listen to the podcast to get insights into the work-life balance for women in Japan and how it has changed over the years, and learn more about Mayu's decision to not adhere to the Japanese norm for stay-at-home moms.

Her best advice to women who struggle with balancing work- and family life:

“Dedicate your time and do what you love. Then maybe the time will come. What matters at the end of the day is the happiness of the family"
