Mizuho International strongly supports the business case for gender equality and they value diversity and inclusion as an integral part of their growth strategy. As such, diversity and inclusion is firmly on the agenda of Mizuho's Board and they're very pleased to report their commitment to set a target of 30% female representation in senior management roles by 30 September 2021.
They have appointed a senior member of their Executive Committee to lead and champion their gender diversity and inclusion programme, and to take accountability while on their journey. They have put initiatives in place to support their target to increase the number of female senior managers, and to encourage and mentor their female talent. Already they have a number of these in place such as a cross company mentoring scheme, returnships and apprenticeships as well as various leadership, and learning and development programmes to name a few.
They are committed to developing their people - their commitment cascades from the Board down and ultimately everyone is accountable at MHI. As a UK subsidiary of a Japanese investment bank, they look forward to and are excited about playing their part in contributing positively to help drive genuine change in the financial services sector.
