With its well-balanced mix of strategic and political instruction, networking and individual counselling, H.I.T. Program came along at a perfect moment in my career. This program enables women academics to reflect, individually and collectively, on their position within institutional structures, and is thus highly motivating for personal development and change.

Looking back at my experience in the HIT Program, I am very glad about the opportunity to participate. It was very motivating to meet colleagues from all over Switzerland and to see the big potential of the strong female leaders that Switzerland has. I also found the coaching session very valuable. Moreover, it is very motivating to see how many of the participants in this leadership program are taking responsibility and are stepping into different leadership roles.

The H.I.T. Program was a fantastic experience. Through the training and personal coaching, I gained new insights and practical skills to enhance my leadership abilities. And, I met a wonderful group of diverse and inspirational women, who I can now consider colleagues and friends.
