Office for Gender Equality

Promote gender equality together with the ROIS

Head  Hiroyuki Enomoto

The Research Organization of Information and Systems (ROIS) has recently carried out the “ROIS Program of Female Researcher Progress” in order to support life events and research activity of female researchers, with support provided by “Project of Supporting Activities for Female Researchers” of MEXT. As part of this project, ROIS and four underlying institutes established the “Office of Female Researcher Development (OFRD)”, and promoted various types of support for female researchers because their development and promotion is very important for the future of our country.

During this year, the OFRD was reorganized as the “Office for Gender Equality (OGE)”. At the National Institute of Polar Research, the OGE is operated by three members: vice director-general (head), the director of administrative office, and a URA (University Research Administrator).
