The future is female
Back in 2021, Nintendo had promised that they’d look to hire more women and move them into positions of power with their ‘Nintendo Women and Allies’ program. 2+ years later, Nintendo unfortunately hasn’t made good on that promise.
According to Nintendo’s latest annual report, 4.2% of their manager workforce in Japan are women. This is the same number we saw back in 2021, which means Nintendo has effectively had zero progress with their own initiative. Unfortunately, Nintendo hasn’t provided comment on why this is.
In the same report, we also learn that the women working at Nintendo are making roughly 72% of what male staffers are paid. Nintendo says this discrepancy is due to the length of service at the company, along with employee age. Nintendo went on to say that there is no difference in treatment between men and women in terms of salary or evaluation systems.
It's not like you can just employ women because they are women. You have to find those with best qualifications. So, and I am guessing here, when a job position opens up and a woman with the proper qualifications apply for it she sure can get the chance, but it's not going to happen over night.
Working at Nintendo Japan is supposedly a very great thing and those who are there would then like to stay there too, so might not be that many jobs to give.
