The “EPFL Without Barriers” project aims to assess existing social and environmental barriers, and to develop and improve the School’s ability to welcome its entire community under the best possible conditions.
EPFL is striving to highlight women scientists from all over the world, as well as its own female researchers, who have played or are playing an important role in science. You’ll find hereafter a list of the various exhibitions and projects retracing the career paths of these inspiring women.
Under the leadership of the Vice-President for Responsible Transformation (VPT) at EPFL, a Task Force Harassment A-Z & Promotion of a Culture of Respect has been set up. The aim is to put in place prevention and support measures, and to ensure that the handling and management of situations meet the highest standards.
EPFL’s strength is rooted in its extraordinary diversity. Our institution thrives because we show consideration for one another and do not remain indifferent in the event of harassment or discrimination.
This project was initiated by the realization that issues related to gender equality and digital transformation are often addressed without connection points between them, which limits their scope significantly.
