The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) will hold a forum aiming at dissemination of diversity management as a continuous source of mid- to long-term corporate values. The forum, which will bring together business owners, investors and others engaged in leading efforts for successful diversity management from APEC member economies, will feature panel discussions and presentations aimed at highlighting the importance of diversity management. Through this forum, the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) aims to encourage companies in Japan to change their human resource strategies through management reform and share recognition of the importance of diversity management.
ANZCCJ Executive Council member and Australia New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) Japan CEO, Grant Knuckey, will be part of the panel discussion on investor views on the significance of gender diversity management and their evaluation of companies’ efforts.
Under the Women and the Economy Forum （WEF), APEC member economies have committed to contributing to gender equality and empowerment of women in the workplace, with the understanding that women's empowerment will accelerate economic growth. This forum will be held in response to the approval by the APEC Policy Partnership on Women and the Economy (PPWE), as an APEC project proposed by METI.
