Action to Japan

In February, 2014, we formed a task force consisting of the members across the departments in JST. To achieve the government's goal of "30% or more of the percentage of women in leadership positions in 2020," we considered new measures, and in April and November 2014, we submitted reports to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. In the reports, we presented the results of the survey on the circumstances surrounding affirmative action and female researchers and proposed new measures.
