H.I.T. - High Potential University Leaders Identity & Skills Training Program - Gender Sensitive Leaders in Academia was launched as part of swissuniversities programme P-7 Equal opportunity and university development 2017-2020.
The University of Zurich as leading house will draw from area-specific UZH expertise, such as the internal collaboration with CHESS. Moreover, H.I.T will benefit from key players’ knowledge of higher education institutions all over Switzerland.
All ten cantonal universities and the two federal technical universities of Switzerland are partners within the H.I.T. project. This concept of collaboration encourages innovative forms of networking and knowledge transfer between higher education institutions as well as strengthening the networks and empowerment of the program participants.
