Who does WiNS represent?

Welcome to the website of the Society of Women in Natural Sciences at ETH Zürich!
We were founded in 2014 as the female association of the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences (
D-CHAB) and were joined by the Department of Biology (D-BIOL) in 2021. We represent all female members of the two departments and our mission is to support Women in Natural Sciences via engagement in career and personal development events, networking and leadership.

Our formal constitution can be found here. For a selection of our present and past events, see our events and gallery page.
