Activities of the Diversity Project Team

Venue for Team Members from Different Divisions
to Learn About the Individuality of Their Peers

Open to all employees, the Diversity Project Team advances initiatives for the purpose of fostering a corporate culture in which all employees are accepting of one another and are properly motivated with opportunities to exercise their talents. In the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016, a meeting was held among the 43 members from across the Group that had been assembled in July 2015 through open application. Back at their workplaces, members shared information on the matters discussed at this meeting to further advance the dialogue. These members were also central in promoting other efforts through coordination among different workplaces.

The Diversity Project Team will continue to be a place for discussions on how to make the Group a livelier organization that is highly productive and conducive to fostering innovation. At the same time, this cross-Group project team will provide a venue for team members from different divisions to help them learn more about their peers.

As one facet of this project team's activities, February 2016 was designated as Diversity Promotion Month. During this month, Diversity Books were distributed to inform employees about the work-life balance support systems available to them. As a new initiative, meetings of the diversity forum for supervisors were held at which the supervisors who are directly responsible for managing other employees met to exchange opinions on how to better utilize diversity in management.
