We believe diversity ensures innovation, critical reflection, and adaptability.
We believe diversity refers at least to gender, nationality, age, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
To support each individual in reaching their full potential and to strengthen the diversity of the Faculty of Science (MNF) community, we strive to prevent all forms of discrimination, to eliminate biases in how people are treated and evaluated, and to provide family-friendly working conditions.
Our faculty-level initiatives include:
At the university level, the office for Gender Equality and Diversity promotes diversity on all levels and is committed to prevent discrimination. In addition to providing support and training, the office offers e.g., the Leitfaden Geschlechtergerecht in Text und Bild. With the Gender Equality Monitoring, the office for Gender Equality and Diversity systematically evaluates data related to gender equality at UZH. All members of the university are represented in the UZH Gender Equality Commission.
