H.I.T : Best Professors in Switzerland

H.I.T. Program, High Potential University Leaders Identity & Skills Training Program – Inclusive Leadership in Academia, is an innovative, evidence-based and exclusive leadership program to specifically train and empower female professors in Switzerland to become university leaders. The H.I.T. Program 2021-24 is built upon the experience gained in the first national leadership program for female professors, H.I.T. Program 2019-20. All cantonal universities and the two federal technical universities are partners in the program, and the University of Zurich is the leading house.
