What are the benefits of membership?
Networking Opportunities – Cambridge AWiSE provides networking opportunities, both professional and social, through our regular meetings. These events give women from different fields the chance to meet each other, increase their personal visibility and opportunities for informal peer mentoring.
Meetings – We run an active programme of events and networking meetings. Our talks by inspirational speakers focus on themes such as mentoring, raising your profile, scientific and technical aspects of STEM careers and entrepreneurship. Our networking meetings are hosted by Lucy Cavendish College and we also hold joint events at venues around Cambridge with other networking organisations including MRC-LMB, Cambridge Business Women’s Network and CamTechNet. We also run meetings and workshops that concentrate on personal development and career enhancement. Our members get reduced entry fees to these events.
Information – Cambridge AWiSE provides a source of information relevant to women working in SET. As well as our website, we also run a mailing list to distribute news and events.
Leadership Opportunities – Cambridge AWiSE provides leadership opportunities for our active members. How about joining the Steering Group, offer ideas for an event or write for the website? All great opportunities to raise your profile and extend your network.
Making your voice heard – Cambridge AWiSE publicises issues affecting women working in SET and brings them to a wider audience. The larger we are, the louder our voice!
Inspiration and Support – Working in a male dominated environment can make women feel isolated. We hope that being a member of Cambridge AWiSE will provide you with information, inspiration and support and help you make the most of yourself and your career.
