Nissan Continues To Empower Women In Its Workforce

Nissan has underscored its commitment to promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace by signing the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs).

Established by UN Women and the UN Global Compact, the WEPs offer guidance to businesses on how to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, the marketplace and the broader community.

“Implementing the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles will provide further momentum to the work Nissan has done to champion women in the workplace,” says president and CEO Makoto Uchida. “It will help us become as equitable and inclusive as we are diverse. Nissan has a moral responsibility to reflect the world we want to live in, driving innovation to enrich people’s lives by combining our diverse insights and understanding. We continue to hold ourselves accountable and invest in endeavors that will benefit future generations. This signing shows our commitment.”

Nissan has long supported initiatives that provide opportunities for women’s advancement in a traditionally male-dominated industry. These include specific female talent development initiatives, a Woman Leadership Program, and a framework to support employees balancing work with childcare, nursing care and other activities.

As a result, the percentage of female managers at Nissan globally has increased from 6.7 percent in 2008 to 15.5 percent as of March 2023. Women comprise 10.4 percent of Nissan’s management in Japan, where the manufacturing industry average is 5.1 percent for companies with 1,000 or more employees (based on data from the Japan Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare).

  1. I guess half of people in the USA and Canada are refusing to buy Nissan cars after they have seen Brie Larson (from "Captain Marvel") doing commercials for them even today, it seems that these kind of people who have owned Nissans may have already traded them for European, mostly German, Italian and Swedish Volvo (as well as British Jaguar/Land Rover, Aston Martin and Lotus), cars because as I remember one quote from BBC's "Citizen Khan" series before that the main character said he drove a Mercedes-Benz while others just steer the wheels of Nissans (Datsun/s/).

    Well, if only Nissan were to behave more like its fellow compatriots Toyota, Honda and to a lesser extent, Isuzu, Mazda, Suzuki and Subaru, then Nissan may just scrub its relations with Renault (forget about France's colonial pasts in Asia) in exchange for them (Nissan) to partner with Toyota so that in turn the French would also apologise to Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. (As given how France's role in those nations during their colonial periods being worse than one of them today.)
