RisingWISE Lightbulb shaped image

RisingWISE is an established Oxbridge network inspired by EnterpriseWISE: designed by women, for women and delivered entirely by women. The programme Directors are Dr Shima Barakat, University of Cambridge and Dr Anne Miller, University of Oxford (for bios please see the ‘programme aims and eligibility’ section).

We are looking forward to welcoming our fourth cohort of women to this award-winning programme.

Applications for the 2021/22 Programme are OPEN and close on 30 November 2021.

We will run the programme in a blended format in the future. We believe this will enable an optimum balance between online and in-person:

1.5 days online – Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd January

1 day online – Saturday 12th February

1 day online – Saturday 5th March

1.5 days/2nights in-person in Oxford – Friday 25th March and Saturday 26th March (plus morning of Sunday 27th March for travel if from Cambridge)


You will be immersed in a three weekend programme of expert-level learning on research within the science and technology industry, tailored to develop your existing skills alongside mentoring and networking opportunities.

The programme brings together approximately 50 women over the three weekends to:

Inspire and strengthen the Oxbridge WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) network;
Improve early-careers researcher’s (ECR) knowledge and understanding of how research works within industry and showing where their skills could apply and explore the different approaches across the two sectors;
Create a space for ECRs to meet other women who are already working within industry so that we can: break down barriers, encourage more women to take up internships and secondments within industry and/or work collaboratively on R&D;
Offer mentoring and leadership skills development opportunities to women in industry; and
Help all participants to enhance their confidence, learning techniques to apply these in their own working environments.
The weekends cover four broad themes:

Personal awareness and creativity – who am I and what are my values?
Creating change and becoming a high impact collaborator
Building my network, resources and toolkit
Celebrating success and developing my strategy/next steps


We hope that you will continue to develop your relationships with your facilitators and mentors and form a supportive network with programme participants.
