Panasonic Young Leaders - Mizuho Maeda

- Posted on April 2, 2022

[Our young employee strives to create a society where women are empowered]
Panasonic has a vision for a better society. The founder, Konosuke Matsushita, once said, "Companies should function as public institutions. We must make sure to contribute to the advancement of society through our business." We have been making our best efforts to create a better society by leveraging technologies; However, the world still faces various social issues, one of which is gender inequality.
"I would like to support people's lives through our products," says Mizuho Maeda. While in charge of the global marketing of refrigerators, she has also launched a new project where she is leading the development of a body camera. Many women do not report sexual assault, feeling that they cannot talk to anyone about it or simply have to let it go. "Part of the problem is," she says, "that women are forced to feel that there is nothing they can do about it."
Having been groped on the street herself, she believes that the body camera footage will help victimized women by securing their option to speak up without being forced to give up and be silenced.
"It would be nice if we could empower even one person." In the interview, she talks about her vision of an ideal future, realized by combining Japan's strengths and the power of designs at Panasonic.

Panasonic Headquarters

- Posted on April 13, 2022

Since April 2022, the Group has been transitioning to a holding company structure with the newly established operating companies underneath it. Thus, the name of this company has been changed from Panasonic Corporation to Panasonic Holdings Corporation, with the name Panasonic Corporation being taken by one of the operating companies that conducts businesses closely connected to people's lives, covering a wide range of home appliances and electrical equipment.
The founder Konosuke Matsushita always believed, "Human happiness can be maintained and enhanced only through both material and spiritual affluence." And based on this thought, he earnestly immersed himself in the work of developing an ideal society, with both material affluence and mental happiness. And today, we in the Panasonic Group are firmly resolved to unite our Group-wide strengths to achieve his aim by always challenging ourselves and making untiring improvements.
