In line with our firm’s adoption of a policy of proactively promoting diversity and inclusion (“D&I”), we established the D&I Promotion Council, which is comprised of our lawyers, other professionals, and staff; furthermore, we have begun activities to implement specific measures, including the above mentioned endorsement, in accordance with the policy. Prior to that, we established the Diversity Promotion Office as a dedicated organization within our firm to promote diversity and inclusion, which cooperates with the D&I Promotion Council to work on D&I related services.
