1. Equal opportunities for men and women
At the HOYA Group we work to achieve fair employment opportunities and benefits for both genders.
At HOYA Corporation in Japan, currently 163 women are active in management positions.* We do not discriminate based on gender in hiring, promotions, or pay increases, and instead focus on actively employing human resources with highly specialized capabilities and morals. In addition, as of the end of June 2022, two of external directors are women.
By our proactive actions, the women in management percentage increase to 14.3% within Japan. In order to increase the women in management percentage in Japan going forward, we will promote the development of a working environment that allows the women working at HOYA to feel reassured in their continual employment.

In Japan, through our general business owner action plan (7th plan) based on the Act on Advancement of Measures to Support Raising Next-Generation Children, the Company is actively developing a working environment that allows employees to achieve a work-life balance.
2. Utilizing people with disabilities
The HOYA Group actively utilizes people with disabilities, for example in the operation of its Ichikawa Challenge Office that supports eco projects.
3. Utilizing global human resources
The HOYA Group implements sales and production at optimal locations on a global level. In addition, efforts are being made to globalize the entire Group by promoting the localization of top management of subsidiaries and actively promoting and creating opportunities for high-quality local human resources. The HOYA Group will work to provide equal opportunities to large numbers of high-quality human resources going forward.
In addition, as of the end of June 2022, at HOYA Corporation we have a non-Japanese executive officer. Also 64% of division managers are non-Japanese nationals.
