Gender Strategy 2017–2020 of the ETH Board
15.12.17 - The ETH Board has just published its 2017–2020 strategy for gender balance and equal opportunities for women and men. The share of women in the ETH Domain is intended to increase further in the next few years.
Various focus areas and measures are being envisaged for this purpose. Thanks to a correction adopted by the Parliament, the ETH Domain will be granted exactly as many funds in 2018 as in 2017 and will thus be spared a budget cut. An external study reveals that the resources invested in the ETH Domain by the Confederation create a great deal of value: each franc generates five times its own value for the Swiss national economy.
