FDFA equal opportunities in the workplace

The FDFA’s concept of equal opportunities in the workplace covers equal opportunities for women and men, multilingualism, and equal opportunities for people with disabilities. 

Equal opportunities within the FDFA are based on the directives of the Federal Council on the implementation of equal opportunities of women and men in the Federal Administration and the promotion of multilingualism in the Federal Administration, both dating from 2003, the Languages Ordinance of 2014 and the Federal Council's guidelines on the employment and integration of people with disabilities of 2011.

Policy on equal opportunities for 2010–2020

The 2010–2020 Equal Opportunities Policy developed by the FDFA is an effective instrument for implementing the Federal Council's directives. It aims to meet the objectives it sets by 2020. Equal opportunities policy focuses on:

  • A progressive and respectful corporate culture within the department
  • Flexible structuring of professional careers
  • The balanced representation of women and men in all functions and at all hierarchical levels
  • The promotion of flexible work models and harmonisation of work with other aspects of life
  • The appreciation of multilingualism and cultural diversity
