Promoting Gender Equality at Nagoya University

The Basic Law for a Gender-Equal Society, enacted in June 1999, positions realization of a gender-equal society as "the most important issue of the 21st century" and is aimed at establishing social systems without gender bias. Soon after the law came into effect, Nagoya University initiated promotion of gender equality and proposed the "Recommendation for Promoting Gender Equality at Nagoya University" in 2001-2002, entrenching gender equality as one of the fundamental principles of the institution.
Then, in 2003, the university established the Office for Gender Equality and the Gender Equality Promotion Special Committee.
