Jan. 22, 2021
Aisin has been selected as a composite of the MSCI Japan Empowering Women (WIN) Select Index, which is an ESG index developed by MSCI Inc.
Based on data related to gender diversity such as the percentage of women hired and women in managerial positions from the Act on Promotion of Women's Participation and Advancement in the Workplace, and the scoring of companies from their publicly disclosed information, the MSCI Japan Empowering Women (WIN) Select Index selects companies who have taken the lead in women's initiatives.
The Aisin Group is committed to respecting the individuals of a diverse workforce, irrespective of attributes such as nationality, gender, LGBT status, or disabilities, as well as to creating a rewarding workplace for all employees, where they can harness their capabilities and unique attributes to actively contribute to the company as professionals in their fields.
Also, in promoting the participation by women in company activities, and to support the desire of each woman to be able to "be true to herself and shine at work," we have introduced initiatives from the perspective of career support and helping women balance their work and home lives.
Specific measures being implemented include the Career Mentor System, the Women's Exchange Group, and the Ikubosu Academy, which is a program to develop managers capable of finding approaches which will support a good work-life balance for people working under them, but are also compatible with improving productivity.
We will continue with our unrelenting devotion to innovation, and in order to provide new value that will delight our customers around the world, we will establish diversity and inclusion as a key business strategy and actively promote these ideals.
