    "description": "<p>This report presents the results of a survey conducted in January 2018 by the ETH WPF. In the&nbsp;survey, all female faculty members from both EPFL and ETHZ were asked to identify issues of&nbsp;concern to them and to evaluate possible measures to address those issues.</p>\n\n<p>At the time of the survey, the statistics for 2017 showed that women constituted only 15% of the&nbsp;faculty at EPFL and 14% at ETHZ. At both schools, the proportion of women was lowest at the rank&nbsp;of Full Professor (9% at EPFL and 10% at ETHZ). An overwhelming majority of the respondents held&nbsp;the opinion that there are too few women faculty, not only in general (91% EPFL, 94% ETHZ) but<br>\nalso at the full professor rank (98% EPFL, 97% ETHZ), on decision-making boards (93% EPFL, 88%&nbsp;ETHZ) and as institute directors (89% EPFL, 91% ETHZ). The respondents endorsed the overall&nbsp;target that women should constitute 35% of the faculty by 2025.</p>\n\n<p>In evaluating measures to address issues that adversely affect women faculty, the respondents clearly&nbsp;identified an important role for academic leadership, particularly in reinforcing the importance of&nbsp;gender diversity and work-life balance and in raising awareness of and addressing unconscious bias.&nbsp;The issues raised regarding bias in the hiring and promotion processes also need to be addressed in&nbsp;a systematic manner at the leadership level; studies of unconscious bias show that such problems&nbsp;are exacerbated by the lack of clearly defined criteria for hiring and promotion. Respondents&nbsp;recommended that proactive measures should be taken to identify female candidates for faculty&nbsp;searches, to promote mentoring and integration of junior faculty in their academic units, and to<br>\nretain tenured women faculty. Although inequitable access to resources was not identified as an&nbsp;issue by the majority of espondents, concerns were raised over the lack of transparency in space&nbsp;and/or resource allocation.</p>",
