Equality & Diversity Essentials Self-taught Bookable
  • This module introduces Equality & Diversity at the University

While the ‘imposter syndrome’ has been somewhat trivialised in social media recently, the impostor phenomenon (as it is more correctly known) is of key concern to those in higher education. Initiatives aimed at broadening participation of under-represented groups (e.g. women in STEM, first in family, BAME students) will be less than successful unless ‘feelings of intellectual fraudulence’ associated with ‘otherness’ is addressed and diminished. This of course, relates to both staff and students.

This introductory workshop, delivered by Dr Theresa Simpkin, aims to highlight the implications of impostor phenomenon in the higher education setting, highlighting how the often debilitating experience can adversely affect achievement, engagement and learning experiences on campus and into the workplace. The workshop also introduces some responses that may assist faculty and support services to address the experience faced by many students and staff alike.

This event is hosted and provided by the University of Cambridge Women’s Staff Network and is open to member and non-members

Problem Solving in Relationships new Thu 29 Apr 2021   12:00 [Places]

Problem Solving in Relationships

A brief introduction to the Collaborative and Proactive Solutions approach

When someone isn’t doing what they ‘should’, it causes difficulties in relationships at work and at home - and even (perhaps particularly) in our relationship to ourselves.

How much energy do we expend trying in vain to get others to meet our expectations, or trying to meet our own?

In this brief introduction to the work of psychologist Ross Greene, author of The Explosive Child and Raising Human Beings, we will look at ways to step outside of power struggles, accommodate our own and others’ lagging skills, and solve problems with creativity, pragmatism, and compassion.

Monday 10 May & Wednesday 12 May from 14:00 - 15:00

Voice Workshop 2 new Tue 20 Apr 2021   12:30   [More dates...] [Places]

This series of four voice workshops, led by Professor Helen Odell-Miller OBE from Anglia Ruskin University, will focus upon wellbeing through vocal exercises and singing, which will be fun, relaxing and non-demanding. No prior musical knowledge or singing experience is needed and sessions will be accessible for all, whether you are a seasoned singer, or new to it. The workshops aim to improve motivation and the ability to concentrate, relax and connect. In addition participants will have time to focus upon their wellbeing and achieving their full potential.

Research shows that using the voice creatively, can motivate and enable our wellbeing and functioning, particularly when recovering from illness. The workshops will facilitate expression, social interaction, intellectual stimulation, fun and connection, through virtual vocal interaction, including movement.

What to expect The four stand-alone workshops across four weeks will include relaxation exercises, vocal warm-ups, vocal exercises and small group work in breakout rooms which, for those interested, could also include song writing.

Participants can keep their microphone off so no one can hear you; equally you can interact with others using your voice with the microphone on at certain points in the workshops if you prefer.

Limited places Due to the nature of the sessions, places on the Voice Workshops will be limited, with a waiting list in operation. If you have a place, please make every effort to attend, or let the EDI Team know if for any reason you will be unable to use your place so it can be offered to someone else in good time.

The facilitator Professor Helen Odell-Miller OBE is a Music Therapist and Director of the Cambridge Institute for Music Therapy Research at Anglia Ruskin University.

Joining instructions will be provided on your booking confirmation email.
