Remote working had quietly been reshaping our lives; part or full-time. From coffee shops, public libraries to living rooms at our dining tables. The emergence of digital office rental services has led to changing attitudes around where we work or manage teams, and to whether we should. Today in 2020, unprecedented times bring us to a mass digital remote working era. With the shift, we explore how best to coordinate our lives, weave in work-life balance, staying efficient and productive.

Cambridge Association for Women in Science and Engineering (CamAWISE) and Equality and Diversity Section at the University of Cambridge organised a panel discussion entitled “Carving our journeys: BME women in STEMM” in April 2019. The panel comprised of four University of Cambridge female researchers with different heritages and at varying stages of their academic careers: Dr Sohini Kar-Narayan, Heba Hamad, Carol Nkechi Ibe and Professor Kay-Tee Khaw.
Following introduction of the Panel Chair, Caroline Shaheera Asante, a British born broadcast journalist of Guyanese and Ghanian descent, and founder of Cambridge Eco Living Festival and Raheela Rehman (Chair, CamAWiSE), each of the panellists gave a short presentation about their foray into science and journey to Cambridge.

Our journey to Antarctica
What better place to sharpen one’s leadership skills than amidst the harsh landscape of Antarctica. The frozen continent is filled with stories of leadership from the early 20th century explorers and their race to be the first to set foot on the South Pole. For 78 women in STEM from around the world, Antarctica was the backdrop for their own explorations into leadership as part of Homeward Bound Projects.
Come join CamAWiSE co-chair Cathy Sorbara and University of Cambridge PhD student Hannah Laeverenz Schlogelhofer, 2 of the women chosen for this leadership program, as they reflect on their experience, why it is so critical to empower more women leaders, what they learned about themselves and working with others on board, and how it will influence their future careers and hopefully inspire others in the audience. And of course, learn more about the continent they have come to love and advocate for.
