BoJ no closer to reach­ing tar­get for more women in man­age­ment

The Pak Banker - - COMPANIES/BOSS -

The Bank of Ja­pan has made no progress in in­creas­ing the pro­por­tion of women in man­age­ment po­si­tions in the past two years.

Women held 4 per­cent of man­age­ment posts in 2015, which was un­changed from 2013, ac­cord­ing to a com­par­i­son of a state­ment re­leased Tues­day and one from 2014. The cen­tral bank, in the state­ments, said it aims to boost the ra­tio of women man­agers to 5 per­cent in 2018 and 10 per­cent in 2023.

Last week Prime Min­is­ter Shinzo Abe opted against giv­ing an­other term to the BOJ board's only woman, Sayuri Shi­rai, when her term ex­pires March 31 and nom­i­nated a man to take the post on the nine­mem­ber board.
