Event Description

日本社会は、少子化が進み、潜在成長率も低迷している。コロナ禍で起こった人びとの意識変化や働き方の柔軟化、デジタル化を、社会を変える機会とすべきである。まず、多様性はイノベーションを生み、変化への対応力を高めるからこそ、多様な働き方、生き方を尊重し、潜在的に力を発揮できなかった若者や女性の活躍を阻む制度、慣行を改める必要がある。また、徹底的な人材への投資で価値創造・生産性を高めるべきである。教育を課題解決力の醸成、デジタル化対応、起業支援などの視点から見直し、画期的イノベーションを起こせる人材を育てることや、積極的労働政策を採用し、労働市場の流動性を高めつつ学び直しや挑戦を応援する社会にすることが求められる。

日本における女性活躍の推進、とくに女性の就労・キャリア形成の機会の拡充は喫緊の課題といわれて久しい。例えば女性管理職比率を見てみると、直近の調査でも12.9%と低い水準にとどまっている(厚生労働省令和二年度雇用均等基本調査)。日本ロレアルでは従来から社内外における女性活躍の支援推進に取り組み、女性管理職比率52%、女性社員の育児休暇復帰率100%をすでに達成している(2021年末時点)。また困窮するシングルマザーへの支援、若手女性科学者への奨学金提供など、社外にむけての女性支援活動も展開している。これらの取り組みを紹介しつつ、企業における女性活躍推進のいまと今後を皆さんとともに考える場としたい。

「日本思想史上、最高の哲学者」とも言われる道元(1200~1253)の主著『正法眼蔵』は、難解をもって知られている。その難解さは、道元が表現しようとする世界のありようが、われわれが経験する日常的なそれを超えている、ということに淵源する。道元は、日常的世界、つまり、自明なものとして出来上がってしまい、われわれの思考や表現の無意識の前提となっている世界に対する理解を、根本的に覆し否定することを通じて「さとり」の世界を指し示そうとしている。講義では、このような「さとり」の世界について、また、「さとり」を成り立たせる自己や世界の構造について、『正法眼蔵』を手がかりとしながら解明を試みたい。

Moderator

Event Description

There is a growing interest in the politics of work-family reconciliation policies. The new scholarly consensus views female voters, who are increasingly better educated and integrated into the labor market, as the main driver of recent policy developments in advanced welfare states. We argue that the transformation of women has also changed men and their family policy preferences. Our paper examines: (i) how education and careers change women’s policy preferences; and (ii) how men’s preferences might change depending on the characteristics of female partners they live with. Our findings highlight intricate ways in which economic interests and gender dynamics intersect to shape the policy preferences of men and women. We find that men in dual-earner households and men partnered with highly educated women are more likely to support family policies but that they support different types of policies. We conduct regression analysis of nineteen OECD countries using the International Social Survey Program data (Family and Changing Gender Roles IV) to substantiate our argument.

Event Description

Women’s representation in managerial positions is a common metric for gender equity in organizations. Whether female managers improve gender equity among their subordinates is, however, less clear. Drawing on rich longitudinal personnel data from a large Korean food company, we provide new insight into this question by focusing attention on key micro-contexts for interaction and relational politics within organizations: workgroups. Building on social-psychological theories about in-group preference and value threats, we theorize that workgroup gender composition conditions the relationship between supervisor gender and gender earnings differentials with them. Results from regression models with workgroup fixed effects confirm this insight. Female supervisors are associated with smaller gender earnings gaps when workgroups are male-dominated, but gender wage gaps widen under female supervision as teams become more female-dominated.

About the Speaker

Young-Mi Kim is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea. Her main area of research is gender inequality in the labor market, organization, and family. Her work has been focused on revealing the unique characteristics of gender inequality in Korea and East Asia in the context of labor market segmentation. Recently, her interest moved to the organization side and she investigates organizational mechanisms of gender inequality in various dimensions using personnel data. She is also a PI of a research project funded by the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRFK) to investigate how social inequality and demographic changes are linked through family dynamics.

  • Mareshi Saito Professor, Graduate School of Humanities and Sociology, The University of Tokyo
Event Description

In the process of modernization, many people were separated from their families or rural communities they belonged to, and became independent and autonomous individuals. At the same time, because of the rapid expansion of industrialization, they had to live a life within an organization – such as the government, companies or the military.

On the one hand, this brought a new problem of how they could find their organizations. On the other hand, conflicts between individuals and their organizations also took place. Especially, in a society under the shadow of death – that is, a society where people are exposed to the risk of death caused by, for example, the Spanish flu, tuberculosis or other kinds of infectious diseases – those problems of whether people can be affiliated and how they can live a good life in an organization were much important.

In this seminar, we will talk about how people dealt with such problems in areas of management and literature – which are often regarded as far distant areas – by using the example of modern Japan. We will also discuss how we can connect management and literature.

About the Speaker

Takashi Shimizu (Ph.D. in economics, The University of Tokyo) is Professor of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, The University of Tokyo.

Event Description

Amidst falling birth rates, an aging population, and an accompanying deterioration in public finances, the Japanese government is placing greater importance on policies that empower women as “labour force,” and support children/childcare (nurturing the labour force of the future). These policies require transformations in how men work and participate in the household, as well as in how firms manage their workers. This talk will review these latest trends in policy, and introduce the oft-overlooked challenges faced by girls and young women who have yet to reach the “startline” envisioned by women’s empowerment. In particular, I will draw on the issues revealed by the work of the Little Women Project – an organization which supports struggling girls and young women.

About the Speaker

Atsuko Muraki is a guest Professor at Tsuda University. In 1978, she joined the Ministry of Labour (now Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare), where she was in charge of Policy Divisions for women and the disabled. In 2009, she was arrested on charges that she was involved in a postage fraud scandal, but she was found not guilty. She returned to her position in the government, and in 2013, she became Vice Minister of the Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare, who was the second woman in this position. She retired from the ministry in 2015. Today, she is the co-founder of the Little Women Project, which supports struggling young women. She is also an outside director for the Itochu Corporation. Her publications include: 『あきらめない』(日本経済新聞出版社)、『日本型組織の病を考える』(角川書店)

Event Description

The Covid-19 pandemic is accentuating the gender gap and existing divides between regular and non-regular workers, large and small firms and various sectors of the economy. In my talk, I would like to discuss the impact of the pandemic on gender differences in Japan, and various factors that are amplifying these differences.

Japanese society is still organized around the breadwinner system of full-time male workers providing for their families while their wives focus on caring for the family. This gender division of labor and patriarchal ideology is embodied in the employment system of regular and non-regular workers in which women are disproportionately represented in the latter category, entailing disadvantages in pay, security and training. The assumption that women are supplemental earners confronts the reality where most households are dependent on both incomes and there is an increasing number of single parent households due to rising divorce rates. Moreover, the never married population is increasing. The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the persistent gender division of labor as hundreds of thousands of working mothers gave up their jobs to cope with school lockdown measures and found it hard to return to work in the midst of a recession. In addition, women have lost jobs because they tend to be employed in sectors that have been hard hit by the outbreak. Teleworking offers the possibility of juggling work and home responsibilities, but this has been largely unrealized because many firms bar teleworking for non-regular workers and women are often in jobs that require a physical presence. Teleworking may not be a panacea but is likely to expand, raising questions about how this flexibility can benefit households and women’s career prospects.

Speakers
  • Mary C. Brinton Reischauer Institute Professor of Sociology, Harvard University
Event Description

Japan ranks very low on every measure of gender equality used by the OECD and other international organizations, including the yearly “gender gap index” published by the World Economic Forum. In 2006, the first year the index was published, Japan ranked 79 out of 115 countries in gender equality. Fifteen years later, Japan’s relative position had declined to 120 out of 156. Standardized across years, the country’s ranking declined from 69 out of 100 in 2006 to 77 in 2021. This latest ranking puts Japan’s level of gender equality below that of many less-wealthy countries in Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East. Why has Japan’s high level of gender inequality shown such stubborn persistence over time? In this talk I examine the misguided policy attempts to “make women shine” and argue for the importance of a paradigm shift in the analysis of Japanese gender inequality.

Event Description

This talk will focus on a question I asked in my 2019 Japan Focus publication, ‘Leaning Out for the Long Span,’ asking, how do women in ordinary career positions maintain both their careers and their well-being when their husbands are rarely able to substantially contribute to childrearing and domestic management? I will discuss the building a career over the long span of marriage and childrearing, and the choices ordinary salary women make not to lean in too far, while enlisting intergenerational support in order to manage their family lives. While such strategies may not propel married women into the ranks of upper management, they are survival strategies while the children are growing up. Will these strategies evolve as companies are pressured to increase the percentage of women in management under Womenomics policies? How much are neo-liberal notions of career-building and self-responsibility affecting Japanese salarywomen? Data come from a longitudinal set of fourteen women in the same Tokyo corporation, whom I have been interviewing at 3-5 year intervals since 2003.

Changing Family Demography & Inequality Within and Across Generations
Speaker
  • James Raymo Professor of Sociology and Henry Wendt III ’55 Professor of East Asian Studies, Princeton University

Profound family change in Japan, including rising rates of divorce, bridal pregnancy, remarriage, lifelong singlehood and increasing variance in age at marriage and childbirth, raises important questions about the implications of these changes for inequality. To what extent are emerging family behaviors associated with educational attainment and other well-established dimensions of social and economic inequality? To what extent are they associated with individual well-being, particularly that of children? To what extent do these changes in family formation shape inequality across the life course, especially at older ages? High-quality social survey data, in conjunction with compelling theory, allow us to begin answering these important questions.

Social Inequality & the Economic Well-Being of the Elderly in Rapidly-Aging Japan
Speaker
  • Sawako Shirahase Professor, Graduate School of Humanities and Sociology, The University of Tokyo

Japan is the most aged society in the world. The speed at which Japan’s population has aged is one of the most important characteristics of its demographic transformation since World War II. Shirahase will present the basic statistics on this trend with regard to economic and gender inequality, as well as the family structure. She will also highlight inclusiveness as a potentially critical concept for linking social empirical evidence on inequality with policy debates.

Event Description

We have spent a year in the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic. Times of crisis tend not to bring forth new and unprecedented change, but rather to exacerbate and amplify the familiar contradictions of everyday life. It has been those women who were already in dire straits to begin with who have felt this burden most keenly. How can a country have the world’s third largest GDP, and yet rank 121st in gender equality? This is a puzzle–and a problem–for Japanese society. By the same token, it is a puzzle–and a problem–that the University of Tokyo’s ratio of female student enrollment cannot break past 20%, even though we live in an age when four-year college enrollment rates for both men and women are about 50%. I look forward to this discussion with my former colleague Shirahase Sawako (who also serves as a UTokyo executive vice president), particularly given her speedy submission of an emergency proposal to the Japanese government as the chair of its「コロナ下の女性への影響と課題に関する研究会」.
