30 November  – 1 December 2018

 

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.

 

We start our second workshop weekend with a tour of Oxford's business start-up community, followed by networking drinks and dinner at Egrove Park.  The Saturday is a full day of interactive sessions and inspiring speakers that will help participants to focus on building their network, finding resources and toolkits to support their career development.
