MNF Gender Equality Committee

Our Priorities

The Faculty of Science's Gender Equality Committee advises the Faculty Assembly, the Faculty Committee, and the Faculty Dean on matters relating to gender equality in appointment and promotion procedures, in the faculty and campus culture, and in other areas not covered by the central UZH Gender Equality Committee.

Our priorities include:

  • Innovating and monitoring professorial appointment and promotion procedures within the Faculty of Science;
  • Confronting and counteracting unconscious gender bias in all aspects of science research and teaching;
  • Tracking the career paths of our students and scientists inside and outside of academia;
  • Promoting family-friendly working conditions;
  • Close cooperation between the Faculty of Science's Gender Equality Committee and the UZH Gender Equality Commission.

The creation of the ad hoc Gender Equality Committee was approved on 14 April 2016 by the Faculty Assembly.
