    CEO Magnan to speak at webinar hosted by Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce and Industry on 6/22

    Women in Business in Japan

    Nearly 20 years ago, Japan set a goal of increasing the percentage of women in management positions to 30% by 2020. However, the percentage has remained largely unchanged, rising only 0.1 percentage point each year, and still stands at about 8% today. And today, due to the impact of the new coronavirus, female promotion seems to have further stalled in its momentum.

    This webinar featured a panel discussion among three women in top positions in Japan on the realities, experiences, challenges, and lessons to be learned from working in a male-dominated environment.

    Ambassador Roxanne de Vilderling, Belgium’s first female Ambassador to Japan, gave the opening speech.
