Capcom is promoting its female workers to executive positions as part of an effort to encourage diversity in the workplace, the company announced in its recent earnings report.

“Capcom is fully recognizing the importance of diversity of human resources in recent years while actively utilizing female workers and making evaluations according to performance and not based on gender, age and such,” the company said.

As part of these efforts, Capcom said it’s promoting executive positions of female employees, and so far already has two female corporate officers and 20 female employees in management positions such as general managers and senior managers.

Capcom’s earnings report also revealed that Dead Rising 3 has sold 1.2 million copies, but that Monster Hunter 4 was its big earner, selling 4.1 copies on 3DS since it was released in Japan last September.
