Gravitas for Women Communicate Confidently

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).

Note: RisingWISE will run in a blended format in the future.

We are looking forward to welcoming our fourth cohort of women to this award-winning programme. Watch this space for further information in the Autumn term and express an interest ahead of time by emailing Louisa at: mpls.enterprise@mpls.ox.ac.uk

Applications for the 2021/22 Programme will open in November 2021. Until then, if you are interested in joining our mailing list for when applications become available, please email Louisa at: mpls.enterprise@mpls.ox.ac.uk 

As outlined, 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)

Testimonials from previous participants

It was a privilege to participate in this gathering of amazing and intelligent women and to be taught by world female experts in communication, entrepreneurship and mindfulness. It was a very inspirational experience that help us not only to grow as entrepreneurs but also to grow in all the other areas of our life. (Meritxell Nus Chimeno, Cambridge)

RisingWISE has been a great opportunity for me. Not only professionally but also personally. RisingWISE has enabled me to connect with others who are interested in the same area of research. As such, two of us have put forward a small grant proposal (to Cambridge-Africa) that got awarded last week. Without RisingWISE that would not have been possible. (Katharina Kessler, Cambridge)
