What we
do

since_2012

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.»

NOW YOU CAN FIND US HERE

After ten years of the Müller-Möhl Foundation we have decided to set up a platform all about the reconciliation for work and family life. The taskforce4women is the essence of all our previous work. Our collected knowledge, experience, and energy is being poured into it. But why take this step? Because in Switzerland, equality in the sense of participation and representation for women is still not being practiced, despite numerous attempts and a huge amount of individual commitment. So we believe it’s high time we drove this issue forward rather more expeditiously by combining all our forces.
