Steele (PhD Political Science) is Associate Professor (Graduate School of Law, Nagoya University), co-founder of the Research Network on Gender and Diversity in Political Representation in Japan (GDRep), Program Director or For Empowering Women (FEW) Japan (Kanto), and most recently, founder of en-joi, D&I Consulting and Training.
