WHAT ARE 17GOALS OF SDGs?
WHAT ARE 17GOALS OF SDGs?

"Women's support" is the key to realizing a sustainable world The ratio of women among Japanese researchers has been sluggish for many years. To find out how to create an environment where female researchers can continue to play an active role, Teikyo University has established the "Female Doctor / Researcher Support Center" and is taking on the challenge of solving problems.

The low percentage of female managers is also an issue at our university.

The ratio of female Assistant Professor and Senior Assistant Professor is 30-40%, while that of Associate Professor and Professor has dropped to the 10% level. A great loss to the future in the sense of the disappearance of research opportunities that may have made a contribution to society in the future.

Isn't there a "time" constraint as one of the causes?

In order to support research activities, the Female Doctor / Researcher Support Center has established a support system focusing on "time" such as a childcare facility use support system and babysitter support.

Focus on education to raise awareness of work-life balance

In order for women to acquire management skills with an eye on research life and family life in the future, we have introduced a system that allows women to consult about work life studies and careers.

Work style reforms for women lead to the realization of diversity

Creating an environment in which female researchers can play an active role affects not only time but also the thinking of "gender role division between men and women." Women's work style reform is to consider the work-life balance of men and women, which leads to the promotion of diversity (diversity of work styles) and the realization of gender equality.
