However, this is from a low base as indicated by only 3.7% of all corporate board seats being held by women and 56% of female workers are not full time (the comparable number is only 22% for men). Gender equality is seen as core issue for the Japanese economy by the government and change is happening in a traditionally conservative country. We will be joined by Miyuki Kashima from BNY Mellon Japan who will be sharing her thoughts and experiences of being a portfolio manager as well as team leader in the Japanese financial community.
