18-19 January 2019

 

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; andHelp all participates to enhance their confidence, learning techniques to apply these in their own working environments. This Friday evening consists of networking drinks and dinner at Egrove Park, with the final day in our workshop series focused on celebrating the successes of the participants over recent months, learning how to manage the media, pitch ideas and develop a strategy for their next steps.
