Nissan Motor Co. aims to boost the percentage of women in management by 2023 to a level that stands out within Japan's male-dominated auto industry, though its chief sustainability officer said there's still far more room for improvement.
The Japanese automaker is seeking to increase its ratio of female managers in Japan to 13 percent by 2023, up from roughly 10 percent this year. Globally, the company is targeting 16 percent female managers by the same year.
Among Japanese automotive industry manufacturers with 1,000 or more employees, about 4.7 percent of managers are women. As of 2018, women made up less than 2 percent of managers at Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co.
