Shiseido, ahead of its time

Shiseido founder Arinobu Fukuhara recognized the importance and contributions of women from the start. When he built the Western-style pharmacy in 1872, his wife Toku was deeply involved in developing the business, herself studying Western Pharmacology, obtaining a pharmacist license and helping commercialize medicines. 149 years later, women comprise 46.2% of Shiseido’s Board of Directors and Corporate Auditors, with 57.5%* female managers shaping the Shiseido Group worldwide.
