OU receives its third Gold rating in a row in PRIDE INDEX 2021!

On November 11, 2021, Osaka University received its third consecutive Gold rating in PRIDE INDEX 2021, an index evaluating corporate initiatives related to LGBT, a first for universities in Japan.

Osaka University has placed great priority on actively promoting Diversity & Inclusion, holding ongoing seminars and training, establishing a consultation counter, and disseminating information to society.

In 2021, Osaka University designated the period from July through October as “Diversity & Inclusion Awareness Months at OU,” holding various events each month.

In September, Osaka University announced its Diversity & Inclusion Declaration, pledging to promote an environment that accepts and respects all forms of diversity. OU also opened its Diversity and Inclusion Space as a place for promoting communication.

OU will continue to strengthen its endeavors for promoting a diverse and inclusive climate at the university by focusing on three pillars: changing the way community members work and study, making multilateral efforts for inclusion and respect for diversity, and equally supporting members to advance gender equality.
