TSE Announces "Looking at Companies through the "Empowerment of Women" "

Update : Aug. 22, 2013


[Tokyo Stock Exchange, Inc.]

For the third round of theme issues, we have selected companies under the theme of "Empowerment of Women," teaming up with the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, which has been pursuing policies to promote the utilization of female human resources in order to revitalize the Japanese economy.

About the theme

There are high expectations that women will help revive the Japanese economy, which has been sluggish for so many years.
Not only can women quantitatively add to the working population of Japan's rapidly aging society, but they are also expected to contribute from qualitative perspectives, meaning that empowered female human resources in important positions could help companies achieve and sustain competitive advantages in the future.
For the third round of our series of theme issues, we have chosen companies listed on TSE's First Section from each industrial sector, which provide environments supporting the long-term employment of women, and which energetically promote active performance of female human resources.
