How to use the Network to develop yourself

planning to develop yourself towards your dreams

How can you use The Rising Network to develop yourself?

✅You’ve attended one event.

✅You’ve signed up for our newsletters.

✅Maybe you’ve taken the plunge and joined as a member.

But perhaps you’re wondering how you can make the most of the Network for self development?

So, how can you use The Rising Network to develop yourself, expand your impact, increase your confidence and take the steps you need towards your dreams?

Personal Development Planning (PDP) Sessions

The name is a bit of a giveaway, but PDP sessions are all about focusing on how you can develop to achieve your dreams and goals. Each session is led by a trained coach and mentor. They’ll guide you through the process of setting your goals, tracking your progress and helping you stay accountable. These monthly online meetings can help you identify skills or experience gaps that are keeping you stuck. They give you the structure to plan for longer-term aims, and offer inspirational support from a group of like-minded women.

If you’re a member, join our next session (FREE as part of your membership!): PDP session, 17th November, 6-7pm, online.

Network with us

We haven’t always liked traditional methods of networking, which is why we designed our own! At all our events, you’ll be part of our Speed Networking With Purpose format, where we aim to make the most connections we can in the time we have available.

Because our community is full of determined and supportive women just like you, we’re confident you’ll gain insight and discover something new at each event. Also, networking is essential to career development. It can open doors to new opportunities, open your eyes to new possibilities and open relationships which mentor you into the next phase of your journey.

The next opportunity to be part of one of our networking events, is at our upcoming Women Rising in STEM – Breaking Boundaries event on 24th December, at the Graduate Hotel Cambridge, from 6.30-9.00pm. This event is designed to help mentor more women to step into or continue their STEM careers.

At the event, you’ll also be treated to some pretty amazing insight and inspiration, from speakers who are thriving in their dream role in STEM.

Inspiration, insight and information

We believe that seeing what’s possible is the first step in having a dream goal.

This is one of the reasons we bring our membership regular inspirational events involving outstanding speakers. We also create articles with insightful experts from across the Network. And our past online events are available to our members to watch again, whenever they need them most.

Our speakers, Chapter Leads and other experts within the Network have so much to offer. They enable us all to learn and be inspired through their experiences.

One of our speakers at the Women Rising in STEM – Breaking Boundaries event on 24th November is Dr Joanna Mills, Head of Entrepreneurship at the Wellcome Genome Campus. You can read more about what she’ll cover at the event, as well as see her speaker profile on our website.
