PMI日本支部女性コミュニティ 定例会第18回 レポート

更新日:2023年12月25日



今年最後となる第18回目の定例会は、キャリアを考えるようなテーマで盛り上がり、

そして今年を総括する「漢字」を各自で選んでみました。


テーマの一つは、「ガラスの天井」を感じますか?


ガラスの天井(Glass ceiling:グラスシーリング)とは、

組織内で昇進に値する十分な素質や実績を持つ人物が、

性別や人種などを理由に、不当に昇進を阻まれてしまう状態の比喩的表現です。


「まだガラスの天井は存在する?」の資料説明の後、

参加者へ「実感として、ありますか?」と問いかけると、


「社外や社内の大規模な会議は男性ばかり」、「女性の役職者が少ない」の声や、

「大変そうだから、昇格候補からはずしてあげた」という事例もあったとのこと。

「ライフステージの変化を理由に異動や退職の選択をする女性や管理職に向いていない

という発言をする女性がいる」とのコメントには、

「そう思わせてしまっているこれまでのキャリアが問題なのではないか?」

との意見もあがりました。


そんな「ガラスの天井」を打ち破るのではなく、じわじわ押し上げていく。

「クォーター制度の波に乗っかって、まずは女性比率を増やしたりと環境を

整えるのも大事ではないか」等、活発な意見交換がされました。


そして、次のテーマは、そんな環境の中、前向きにどのように対処していくのか、

尊敬する人やロールモデルの紹介に移りました。

自分の仕事のやり方を変えるきっかけになった方、

年齢を重ねても挑戦的に生きる方が、男女問わずロールモデルとしてあがってきました。


最後は、時流にも乗って「今年の漢字」を各自で選んでみました。

皆さんの「漢字」は、「新・次・挑・病・重・踏・対・動・別(離)・出」

バラエティに富んだ文字の数々に層の厚いメンバの顔が浮かびます。


PMI Women's Communityとの出会いを1年のトピックにあげて下さった方もいました!


来年はよりいい年にしたいとの決意を新たに、年内最後の定例会をクローズしました。

ご参加頂いたみなさま、ありがとうございました。

PMI Japan Chapter Women's Community Regular Meeting No. 18 Report


The 18th regular meeting, the last of 2023, was lively with themes that made us think about our careers, then, we each chose our own "Kanji of the Year" to summarize this year.


One of the themes was "Do you feel the glass ceiling? What is a glass ceiling? "

The term glass ceiling refers to persons with sufficient qualities and accomplishments to deserve promotion within an organization, however, they are unfairly denied promotion because of their gender, race, or other factors.


After explaining the material “Does the glass ceiling still exist?",

we asked the participants, "Do you feel that it does?"

Some said, "members of large meetings outside the company or inside the company are all men", "There are not many women in positions" and others said, "It seems too hard, so I don't want to be a candidate for promotion”. In addition, there was a case in which a woman was removed from the list of candidates for promotion because she seemed to be having a hard time for raising kids.


There are women who choose to transfer or retire because of life stage changes, and women who say they are not suited for management positions.

Some commented, "I think the problem is their past careers that have led them to believe that.”


Rather than breaking through such a "glass ceiling," we are slowly pushing it up. Isn't it also important to take advantage of the quota system to increase the ratio of women in the workforce and to create a better environment? We discussed the matter a lot.


The next theme was the importance of creating an environment in which women can work. We talked how to deal with such an environment in a positive manner.

The discussion moved on to the introduction of respected people and role models.

Role models, both male and female, were introduced as people who have inspired them to change the way they work, and they live challenging lives even as they get older.


Finally, in keeping with the current trend, we each chose a "Kanji of the Year" for the year. The kanji chosen by everyone were "new," "next," "challenge," "illness," "heavy," "step," "pair," "move," "separation," and "departure". The variety of kanji brought out the faces of the members of the community.

Some mentioned thier encounter with PMI Women's Community as their topic of the year! We closed the last regular meeting of the year with renewed determination to make next year even better.

Thank you to everyone who attended.
