Interesting jobs and exciting activities
"We not only have interesting jobs here but some of our other activities are often just as exciting. In September 2016, I organized a technical women's group to improve working conditions for women at BASF Japan. Through the activity, we have created a valuable network and we encourage each other in a variety of areas. Now we are working with the company to implement our recommendations."
