Equal Opportunities, Diversity & Inclusion at PSI
The success of PSI is based on the motivation and performance of its employees. As a federal institution, PSI also has a role function. The Committee for Equal Opportunities and the Center of Competence for Diversity & Inclusion support the directorate in ensuring equal opportunities for all employees.

The Mentoring Programme is a competitive programme aimed at women, who would like to take on a leadership role in the future. It initially started in 2018 and finished its pilot phase in the end of 2020. The Mentoring Programme will be continued beyond this phase and has been externally evaluated as unique due to:
- being open for all women (scientists, technicians as well as women working in administration)
- being open for women who have not yet taken on a leadership role
For the first time now the programme will also include ambitious mentees and mentors from Empa and WSL.
