Title of presentation: Behind the scenes of a student association

Abstract:
Within the departments of mathematics and physics at ETH Zurich, our student association takes on an important role. VMP - the association of mathematics and physics students at ETH Zurich - has been a part of the departments for over 76 years now. Our goal is to represent our students in issues relating to university policy and to make our students’ life more pleasant beside the classroom.
Especially concerning the issue of gender equality, our opinion has been asked for many times, which encouraged us to found a commission within our student association for female student in 2016. In my talk, I wish to explain why we created [phimale], what we offer our students and what our goals are. I will focus on what we already achieved since its foundation and which projects we will address in the future.
