Geez!

Shigeru Yasu was in his new role as chairman for only two months!

JRE was initially established by Goldman Sachs using their infrastructure fund and acquired by the ENEOS Group in 2021.

Change is coming slowly in Japan, which consistently ranks near the bottom in international gender equality surveys and where sexual misconduct complaints are often disregarded. Victims tend to face criticism for speaking up.

That's a mighty harsh assessment of Japan in an article by the Associated Press.

Best to drink with your buddies. I always suggest end of year sober lunches where I work but that gets no traction.

Expect a growing watershed of sexual assault and sexual harassment cases in Japan as Japanese women finally grow in courage to speak up against the nation's sex crime problem.

This is not so much about men treating woman as equal as it’s more about men not acting like swine.

More to come I’m sure. Taking these old sacho and managers to task for their actions slowly but surely

I see this happening almost every day! It's in the Japanese culture for men to see women as sex objects! No amount of training is going to fix that! They just don't understand what the problem is, they see it as having some fun! Dirty talk in front of women, asking women their bra size, their age, if they have a boyfriend, the list goes on....

As the executives go upper the ladder to success the further their britches fall to their ankles!
