Supporting Women's Career Advancement

We are making efforts to encourage women to take on new challenges and provide them with career development opportunities by setting numerical targets for female appointments and offering training for female employees and managers.

Setting numerical targets

At our three major companies, our joint numerical goal is to raise the ratio of female staff in managerial positions to 24% by the end of March 2021. We are also actively promoting numerical targets for female appointments in each company. By the end of March 2018, our three major companies' ratio of female staff in managerial positions was improved to 21%.
Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking appointed its first female executive officer in Japan in June 2016. Afterwards, female executive officers were appointed in MUFG Bank (2), Mitsubishi UFJ Research and Consulting (2), and Mitsubishi UFJ NICOS (1).
