Women winemakers

Our first event of the year was a social one at the Wine merchants. We enjoyed a wine tasting focused in women winemakers. Alice Archer proved to be an expert and entertaining host.

We learned about how women have made a difference in vineyards and wineries worldwide. From well-known champagne houses as Veuve Clicquot (widow of Clicquot) to more modern wines as Sin complejos (unashamed) from Gil Luna vineyards.

A great and fun event!

All female voyage to Antarctica

An adventure involving 75 international scientists with an agenda to change the world.

Deborah Pardo, a Research Associate at Lucy Cavendish College, was part of the first Homeward Bound expedition, a groundbreaking leadership, strategic and science initiative for women, set against the backdrop of Antarctica. The inaugural voyage took place last December.


The initiative, turned global movement, aimed to heighten the influence and impact of women with a science background in order to influence policy and decision making as it shapes our planet. 76 women were selected from around the world and included astronomers, engineers, physicists, science communicators, Antarctic and Arctic specialists, doctors and social scientists.


Deborah Pardo will share her inspiring experience with us, illustrating her talk with some fantastic slides. Find out why she decided to apply for this extraordinary project, how she set about fundraising for €20,000 and how CamAWiSE helped her. Of course, we’ll also hear about the three weeks she spent in Antarctica and how that changed her.

Book now and join us on Wednesday 15th February at Lucy Cavendish College.

Wine tasting: women winemakers.


Don’t forget to book for our first event of the year: wine tasting. The theme will be women winemakers. It is a great opportunity to chat with and enjoy the company of other women who work in STEM and related areas.

The evening includes the tasting of several good quality wines, and some food (usually cheese, charcuterie, bread, and olives). With expert hosting by Cambridge Wine Merchants, whose wine tastings are fun, informal and informative, this will be a great evening.

Winter networking 2016

Speed networking, stories of real-life professional women and mince pies. That could be a recap of the 2016 winter networking, but it was so much more.


Mince pies

During the speed networking, the room was filled with energy as attendees changed partner every five minutes. This allowed everybody to make more contacts and to hone their networking skills.


End of a five minutes segment.

After the networking, several members of the steering group talked about their professional careers. Although they all had different paths they all stressed the importance of doing what you enjoy and not what you are supposed to do

For all of them, CamAWiSE was very important in different stages of their career as a friendly and supportive group. Indeed, CamAWiSE is a good place to connect with professional women who share similar experiences, gain skills and increase your confidence.

We also had an impromptu speaker: Lucy Bennett, an engineering student who brought out the importance of having female role models for students like her.

Thank you very much to all the speakers for sharing their experiences with us.
