We have now opened registration for the second round of the SeedWISE programme, Starting on Monday 20th September and finishing on Monday 8th November (with a one-week break the last week of October). Full dates, times and information can be found in the ‘How, When and Where’ section below.
SeedWISE is an enterprise programme born out of the success and demand for our flagship enterprise programme for women postdocs; RisingWISE. Specifically aimed at women DPhil researchers, we have taken the core RisingWISE aims and tailored the course for women at this important stage in their careers.
SeedWISE is tailored specifically for DPhil students who identify as women or non-binary and are working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Women are being urged to pursue careers in STEM subjects, where they often excel, but face a huge disparity in achieving success and leadership roles. SeedWISE has been developed to help address this challenge, bringing together women DPhil students from different STEM disciplines at the University of Oxford to meet with women working in industry and commerce, who face similar challenges. We work closely with industry to build mutual relationships, which aims to benefit women both working and studying in STEM roles.
SeedWISE is being run in partnership with IDEA. Sign up for the IDEA mailing list here, and we’ll keep you informed about upcoming opportunities and events. And don’t forget to join our LinkedIn group!
