Takeda believes that career development for women plays a key role in promoting greater diversity in Japan. We develop women leaders strategically through initiatives such as the "WILL Female Development Acceleration Program" managed by the Human Resources Department. Through such initiatives, Takeda aims to increase the percentage of women in managerial positions from 2.5% (fiscal 2012) to 5% (fiscal 2015). Spurred by our recent commitment to support Women's Empowerment Principles, we are determined to promote further initiatives going forward.
