In brief

Much remains to be done to achieve gender equality in Swiss economic life.

New perspectives and different voices need to be heard! is a project which disseminates academic research, and aims to use the insights of social sciences in support of gender equality.

We reveal the mechanisms by which gender inequalities are reproduced, and use a variety of means of communication to foster an interactive dialogue with the public.

The project is developed by the School of Social Work at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts , and funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (Agora) .
