Equity and Diversity at Swiss Universities

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
In this chapter, I will provide a brief overview of the “gender and diversity landscape” at Swiss universities. I will begin by presenting some information about the higher education system in Switzerland and looking at the relevance of gender and diversity management. I will then discuss in greater detail the situation of equal opportunity initiatives at Swiss universities. There is a special focus on the “Federal Programme for Equal Opportunities of Women and Men at Swiss Universities”, as it is the broadest programme in terms of scale and scope for Swiss universities. Subsequently, I will briefly address the situation at the Swiss Institutes for Technology, the Universities of Applied Sciences, the Swiss National Foundation and provide an overview of the closely related topic of promoting the development of Gender Studies in Switzerland.
