【Report】Seminar: “The Determinants of the Gender Gap in the Proportion of Managers among White-collar Regular Workers”
Lecturer: Professor Kazuo Yamaguchieport
Last September 17th, we invited Professor Kazuo Yamaguchi of the University of Chicago (U.S.A.) to host a study group. The topic was “The Determinants of the Gender Gap in the Proportion of Managers among White-collar Regular Workers: Undue disadvantages of being women and the policy measures of their eliminations” We received a report based on very sophisticated analyses of the causes of the gender gap in management ratios, in light of the low percentage of female managers in Japan and current slow rates of improvement.
On the day the event was attended by about 20 people, including researchers from our own campus and those from other universities, as well as media journalists. After the Professor’s report, there was a lively question-and-answer session. Please note that details of the day’s report can be found on the RIETI (Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry) website.
