Blog – Productivity, Confidence & Work/ Life Balance, and my ‘Burning Yes’

By Dr Carrie Mowatt

On the 23 June 2020, Olga Degtyareva’s online workshop took the participants through setting boundaries to enable us to achieve our long-term goals and helped think about prioritising our ‘burning yes’.

Little did I know that the universe was going to provide me with a spectacularly unforgettable ‘burning yes’ later that very evening!

Olga set the scene by painting an engaging and relatable picture of the many varied work/ life balance challenges encountered by women at all stages of their careers in STEMM. We touched on the extra challenges and opportunities around remote working and home-schooling during the extraordinary circumstances of the coronavirus pandemic.

As scientists we are very busy during our work day, with hundreds of things needed to be done. This makes it difficult to find time to do what’s really important such as writing up our research papers. Often, even when we do sit down to write, we find ourselves getting distracted or discouraged and as the result little writing gets done…

Increasing your confidence and balancing your work life is a way to become more productive! You can get more done in less time, and also feel more in charge of your day and happier in your life. In this webinar Olga is going to share with you the tools and strategies to do it, and provide inspiration for you to implement them in your situation.

ALL WELCOME (all genders and non-STEMM). #INWED20

Blog – Impact and Influence in the workplace (…and beyond)

By Isla Furlong

The May 2020 CamAWiSE event was from Natacha Wilson, founder and director of Cambridge Insights, a company that works with leaders, aspiring leaders and teams to maximise their positive impact on the world. Instead of a face-to-face meeting, she provided an engaging and interactive Zoom webinar and workshop addressing impact and influence in the work place and beyond.

To kick off, attendees were invited to introduce themselves on the chat function and tell everyone what they do and where they work/influence. While we weren’t in the same room physically, this was a great way to feel part of the audience and it was interesting to see the range of backgrounds represented on the call.

Natacha engaged participants to consider:

  • define Influence, Status and Power
  • “spheres of influence” – choosing your level(s) of influence
  • hierarchy – formal or non-formal decision process
  • “Lateral” leadership
  • ….

Blog – The Volunteer Spirit: Why I Became a Volunteer & What Came Next

By Iratxe Puebla

As for most of us, my life is already pretty packed with duties and commitments, I work full time, I am a mum, and I try to keep in as much contact as I can with family and friends, then there is also the household chores, bills and school activities to keep up with. With so many calls on my time already, you may wonder why would I choose to add volunteering to my list?
