By developing the ETH WPF, you’ve already managed to achieve important goals. What additional measures and steps are required to go beyond these goals?

As a network, we’re still at the development stage. Continued communication and persuasion efforts are needed so that it can become more established and embedded in ETH’s structures. Our goal is that our concerns are heard and that we’re seen as a sounding board. We’d like our input to generate real added value for the organization. And finally, our work also needs to be supported and recognized by senior management.
I really think ETH is a great university and is an incredible asset to the Swiss nation and the international community. To maintain and even better improve our international standing, I am quite certain that we would benefit by being viewed as leaders in the areas of promoting women in STEM fields. We are not there yet, but I am confident that ETH has the resources to make it happen. I just wish we could have started 20 years ago!
