http://islandhonda.ca/women-auto-trendsBack in 2016, the Japanese government decided it was time for more women to get the high-level business positions that they deserved. Their goal was for 30% of the nation’s corporate leadership roles to be filled by women by 2020. We’ve got two years to go, but Honda Motor Co. started right away.

Asako Suzuki was Honda’s first female senior executive. She worked her way up the corporate ladder and was internally promoted to her current role.
 
In 2014, 
Hideko Kunii was the first woman named to Honda’s board of directors. A technology expert, she studied at San Jose University and the University of Texas at Austin and previously worked for the Japanese electronics company Ricoh. She is now in charge of promoting gender equality at the university in Tokyo.

The auto industry is a space where women belong, period. You deserve to feel confident and excited during the car-buying process and every day when you’re out on the road. The more strong female voices we have at every level, from Honda executives to mechanics to sales, the better the future of every woman’s vehicle experience.
