An interregional communications campaign to promote 100 women and their exceptional careers.

Our campaign seeks to show young people – and especially young girls – the broad range of exciting professional and personal paths that women living in French- and Italian-speaking Switzerland and neighbouring France have taken. Most of the women did so after completing training or pursuing careers in fields that are (stereo)typed as male. When women make these career choices they are all too often seen as exceptions to the norm – and that’s just the misconception we want to get rid of.

A TEAM EFFORT

This campaign is part of the Interreg PILE project and a swissuinversities cooperation initiative (module B). It is being run by the Equal Opportunities Office at the University of Geneva (UNIGE) in partnership with the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI), the University of Franche-Comté (UFC), the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Western Switzerland (HES-SO), the Geneva Canton equal opportunities office (BPEV), and the Vaud Canton equal opportunities office (BEFH).
