Enterprising Women aims to encourage, inspire and support the participation of female STEM researchers (those who identify as women or non-binary) in innovation and entrepreneurship, through a variety of events and programmes.
RisingWISE is an established Oxbridge network inspired by EnterpriseWISE: designed by women, for women and delivered entirely by women. The programme Directors are Dr Shima Barakat, University of Cambridge and Dr Anne Miller, University of Oxford (for bios please see the 'programme aims and eligibility' section).
SeedWISE is an enterprise programme born out of the success and demand for our flagship enterprise programme for women postdocs; RisingWISE. Specifically aimed at women DPhil researchers, we have taken the core RisingWISE aims and tailored the course for women at this important stage in their careers.
A series of talks by enterprising and successful women working in STEM
Our previous participants are inspiring in ways both big and small and we are proud to share some of their motivating profiles here. Many have made changes since completing the programme and are happy to share their stories to encourage more women working in STEM to step back and realise different pathways are open to them.
Whether you're an experienced STEM entrepreneur looking to help, or a complete novice looking to learn, you can stay up-to-date with the opportunities available for expanding your network, advice, materials, links to useful entrepreneurial and business networks and any other enterprise-related news. Want to suggest an addition?
The Women in STEM networking event will be run virtually this year. It is a chance to meet Oxford's Women in Science, Engineering and Maths societies, speak with inspiring women and find out more about the many University support networks available.
