Information exchange project among organizations interested
in human resource development for women in science and technology
Although there have been an increasing number of schools and companies that have been working on human resource development for women in science and engineering in recent years, there are still not so many that are actively engaged in human resource development for women in science and engineering as a public service that transcends regional, age, and positional boundaries. Against this backdrop, in response to the voices of those who wish to “support career education for girls in science and engineering” and “learn about the current status of career development for women in science and engineering,” we would like to provide a platform for the exchange of a variety of information by making the most of the achievements of the “Summer School for Girls in Junior High and High Schools” to date.
<2nd meeting held on June 24, 2022>
In this meeting, we exchanged information while learning about “Gendered Innovations,” which aims to incorporate a gender perspective into science and technology for future innovation, with group discussions online.
With the participation of 14 organizations, the lecture given by Prof. Narie Sasaki (Special Project Professor, Institute for Gendered Innovation, Ochanomizu University) was particularly well received.
<1st meeting held on December 10, 2021>
We had 18 organizations participate in our first online business networking event.
On the day, after the three companies presented topics such as issues and approaches to career development for women in science and engineering, and introduction of projects for elementary school girls, the participants exchanged opinions on five themes:
1) Next generation education
2) Recruitment of female students New graduates, internships, mid-career recruitment
3) Career development and career advancement,
4) Diversity initiatives within the company
5) Cooperation with local governments and cooperation among companies.
