The programme runs for six months, from April to September 2021. Anyone with an academic or a professional interest in STEMM can apply, independent of whether you are located in Cambridge or elsewhere. Participants will be provided with documentation and support by CamAWiSE as they progress through the programme, CamAWiSE will also run an online orientation session at the launch of the programme where we will cover mentoring, the schedule of the programme and some tips for developing the mentoring relationship. Further information about the programme is available in the participant Handbook.

We welcome applications from both mentors and mentees. There is no prior knowledge of mentoring required to participate as a mentor and there are no gender restrictions.

Women in Leadership – Hack your Leadership Mind

Date: 21 January 2021

Time: 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm


We are delighted to be joined by Naily Makangu (Founder and Business Transformation Consultant at Athena Leaders).

Due to various reasons, a lot of women hold themselves back from leadership positions. This can be at a conscious or subconscious level.

How do I know this? Well through my own personal journey and the stories of many women, whether in STEM or not. In fact, one of the first hurdles for most women is the emphasis on the word “leadership”. Am I a leader or not? Do I need some form of “authority” or “permission” to lead and inspire others? Once you go beyond that, there are the various challenges of leading in STEM (a male dominated industry).

Strategic Planning: Become a Future-ready Leader

Date: 11 February 2021

Time: 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm


When it comes to leadership roles, it is crucial to understand that having a leadership position and having excellent leadership skills are two different things. Luckily for us, evidence shows we can acquire these skills through the right training.

To accurately assess who we are as a leader, where we are and where we are going requires an extraordinary degree of awareness about self, others and the environment. If you want to make sure your strategic planning process is deeply meaningful and highly effective for you and your stakeholders, you must learn to view it through the lens of Emotional Intelligence.
