Men as champions of change with Jill Armstrong

poster1.jpg

Collaborating with Men is ground-breaking research conducted by Murray Edwards College with men to establish how men and women can work together to transform workplace culture barriers to women’s progress into leadership positions. Much research shows how women’s careers are ill-affected by assumptions and behaviour in the workplace that arise from the dominance of masculine culture. Yet, very little research has sought the point of view of men. The research asks men who support gender equality: Do they see the problems women report? What they can personally do to help change the workplace? What support do they need from leaders?

Relaunch your career November 4th

Are you looking to change careers but have no idea where to start?

Have you taken a career break and are looking for advice and support on how to re-enter the workforce?

Have you relocated because of your significant other and now find yourself unemployed?

We have a special event just for. On November 4th 2017, at the British Antarctic Survey’s Aurora Center, we will be hosting ‘Relaunch Your Career’.

We aim to give you the tools, confidence and support system to take that first step. A full day of training for women with a background in Science, Technology, IT, Engineering, Maths, and Medicine, it will include expert speakers, workshops and plenty of networking opportunities.

We invite all women, regardless of your career stage, to take advantage of this incredible event.

The morning will be devoted to talks from experts about identifying your skills, job flexibility, confidence, negotiation and more and the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the speakers.

Following a lunch break, we will have workshops to give you hands-on experience on creating an online presence, crafting your CV, finding your career anchors and more.

Finally, we have organised an inspirational woman in STEM career panel so you can hear from women who were in your situation and how they coped. Learn from their successes and failures and feel supported.

LMB alumni return to share their career experiences

camawise_O125907_adj_cr-215x215The LMB and Cambridge AWiSE recently held their 11th annual “What Next For Your Career in Science?” event in the LMB’s Max Perutz Lecture Theatre. The three speakers, Monika Papworth, Elizabeth Fairley and Sarah Cumbers, were all LMB alumni, who since leaving the LMB have gone on to be successful in diverse areas.  All of them spoke about how they have built on the scientific training they received at the LMB to pursue their careers outside academia.  They talked about the importance of finding a career that is right for you and that matches your aspirations and interests, and not to be afraid to try something and move on if it isn’t right.  They encouraged attendees to persevere to achieve their goals and to make the most of any opportunities that arise including learning from the influential people they come into contact with throughout their career.  Finally, they all mentioned the challenges of having children while maintaining a career and how they have successfully overcome these.

“All that has remained the same in science in the last 30 years is Gilson pipettes”
