9-11 November 2018 University of Cambridge

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.

 

Our 4-day workshop will bring together approximately 50 women over 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 participates to enhance their confidence, learning techniques to apply these in their own working environments.

 

On the Friday afternoon, RisingWISE participants will be given a tour of Cambridge's business start-ups.  The sessions on Saturday will focus on, personal awareness and creativity – who am I and what are my values?.  This will be followed by late afternoon networking drinks and then dinner.  The second day looks at how women can create change and becoming a high impact collaborator.
