Diversity in management

In an effort to encourage diverse human resources to play active roles, the JAL Group believes it is essential to provide women with a fulfilling career path and allow them to participate in the development of JAL Group's future. We also believe that incorporating women's viewpoints in management is essential for creating new corporate values.
Promoting women's career development has therefore been a top priority management issue and various initiatives have been taken. Women account for 10% of directors and executive officers at Japan Airlines Co., Ltd. as of June 30, 2015.
In order to ensure diversity, external directors with vast experience, deep insight and expertise in various fields are appointed.
