RisingWISE is a newly established Oxbridge network that aims to foster long-term relationships between enterprising early-career researchers and women working in industry, to encourage more women to build careers across the science and technology sector.
RisingWISE is tailored specifically for early career researchers (including PhD researchers) who are working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The programme will run over 3 weekends across both Oxford and Cambridge. Programme: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 participates to enhance their confidence, learning techniques to apply these in their own working environments.
