“Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”

Yuko Ueno

The theme celebrates the tremendous efforts by women around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19.

We would like to pay tribute to healthcare professionals, caregivers, and essential workers who are at the forefront of COVID-19.

The Fuji Oil Group is dedicated to empowering female employees, and this conviction is manifesting in a gradual increase in female representation in management positions. However, the ratio in senior manager still remains low globally. It is my hope that the Group will take steps to nurture the ambitions of female employees and heighten their career awareness to increase the number of women in senior management positions. 

Today, I feel that women are more than ever required to bring a variety of experiences, perspectives and skills to make an irreplaceable contribution to society.
