Nagoya University President Matsuo Attends HeForShe Ceremony in UN Headquarters in New York

Last year, Nagoya University became the only Japanese university to be selected as one of the 10 universities to join "IMPACT 10 x 10 x 10," a program initiated by HeForShe (a movement led by UN Women to promote gender equality).


On September 20 (Tue), 2016, during the period in which the 71st United Nations General Assembly was held, UN Women unveiled the first-ever HeForShe IMPACT 10×10×10 University Parity Report, which highlights gender equality at higher education institutions in the world. At the press conference, Nagoya University President Seiichi Matsuo, the only Japanese attendee of the conference, expressed the University's commitment.
