With « H.I.T — High Potential University Leaders Identity & Skills Training Program - Gender Sensitive Leaders in Academia », the Swiss universities and EPFs offer women professors a new leadership programme designed to prepare them for leading positions in academia and help them develop gender equality and diversity competences.
H.I.T is a cooperation programme of the Equal Opportunities Offices of Swiss universities and EPFs, supported by swissuniversities and coordinated by the University of Zurich.
20 places were available to women professors at partner institutions. 3 UNIL professors were selected among many applications to participate in the programme.
