Promoting equality between women and men in scientific careers as well as within the administrative and technical staff is an integral part of the policy of continued excellence implemented by EPFL.
The ETH Board has set itself the objective of reaching a ratio of 35% women among new faculty hires in the period 2021-2024. To reach this goal, EPFL aims at being able to make 40% of offers for faculty positions to women within the same period.
The ETH Domain also aims to increase the percentage of women in management and leadership positions, and to reach a ratio of 25% women in function levels 10 and above, including both academic and non-academic functions, by 2024.
Regarding the student population, EPFL and ETH Zurich have a joint target of having women make up 33% of their combined student body by 2024.
