As a nonprofit organization, we’re working towards developing Switzerland as a society – and we’ve been doing it since 2012. From the very beginning, education, the reconciliation of work and family life have been important to us. Today, we are focusing on the latter with our taskforce4women. This means that we show our true colors, motivate, and reward talented people. We identify challenges, critically scrutinize, and highlight grievances. We work on sustainable ideas for reform, sometimes by ourselves but more often as part of a team with selected partners. And we assume responsibility by taking a seat at the table, initiating projects, and bringing them to life. In fact, we never stand still. That’s why our motto is: better in the thick of it than lagging behind. Below you can see our commitment in recent years at a glance.
«SO TELL ME…» THE BIG INTERVIEW WITH THE FOUNDER
Should we write a chronicle, a whopping great book? That’s something we considered to mark the foundation’s ten-year anniversary. There wouldn’t be any problem filling the empty pages with all the projects and meetings and even the setbacks we’ve experienced over the decade. But we’d much rather keep on working in the here and now with a focus on what lies ahead. That’s why we’re saving our resources and our energy for what we’re doing today – and for whatever the future may bring. However, that doesn’t mean we’re keeping quiet. Here, the founder Carolina Müller-Möhl gives a good-humored interview in which she provides a glimpse behind the scenes, recalls the most unbelievable moments over recent years, and explains why it all had to culminate with a huge event – a party!
«I was lucky enough to be taught how to combine family and career from an early age.»
«Nonetheless: men and woman in Switzerland do not experience the same degree of participation and representation. Among other reasons, that’s because it’s often difficult to combine a family and career. But our society is only strong enough for the challenges that lie ahead if 50 percent of all those involved at all levels of economic and cultural life are women.»
Where do we see the greatest need for action? How are female ideas heard? What can a business do to be an attractive employer for women? And what advice would we give staff to boost their careers?
We’ve already answered these questions and more. Why not read a selection of media articles about us (german).
