Promoting Gender Equality at NAIST
NAIST’s Gender Equality Promotion Office Supports Career Advancement.
NAIST established the Gender Equality Promotion Office on September 1, 2009, in order to promote gender equality throughout
society under the Supporting Activities for Female Researchers, thus creating the Development Program for Female Researchers
in Science and Technology. At the end of each three-year implementation period, we have continue to provide various assistance
measures to improve the productivity of the research by researchers while helping to accelerate their career advancement.
