Capcom wants to boost its diversity by promoting some female employees

Capcom has pledged to increase its gender equality and internal diversity, starting with the promotion of females into executive roles.


It comes from Capcom’s own financial report, which reads:

“Capcom is fully recognising the importance of diversity of human resources in recent years while actively utilizing female workers and making evaluations according to performance and not based on gender, age and such.

“As part of such efforts, we are promoting executive positions of female employees, and so far we have two female corporate officers and 20 female employees in management positions such as general managers and senior managers.”

This might have something to do with the revelation that there are no playable females in PS4 exclusive Deep Down, which was followed by a heated blog our very own Brenna Hillier wrote on the matter to call the company out, among other things.
