Nintendo updates policies to increase push for diversity

Platform holder says women make up 4% of managerial staff in Japan, almost 24% globally

Today Nintendo released an updated corporate governance report that details increased efforts on diversity.

The platform holder said that it is "recruiting women and creating an environment in which women can build successful careers."

However, Nintendo added it doesn't have specific targets for the appointment of women or foreign nationals to its managerial ranks.

As of March 31, 2021 women represent 23.7% of Nintendo's managerial staff globally and 4.2% of managers in Japan.

"As a global company engaging in the entertainment business, which is characterized by increasingly diversifying customer needs and preferences, it is essential that we leverage the talents of a diverse workforce," the company said.

The updated policies to the company's diversity comes a week after Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser commented on the ongoing situation at Activision Blizzard.
