Life is a risky business with implications for our financial wellbeing. Living longer, working later, career flexibility, and evolving family formations, mean that our financial futures are shaped not only by the decisions we make about our money, but increasingly by the decisions we make about our life.

Join this interactive session with Jane Portas to find out about financial life in the UK, differences in people’s financial life journeys, how financial gaps arise between men, women, and other groups, and what Covid-19 means for all of our financial futures.

Jane will talk about how our mindsets influence our financial life, and introduce “6 Moments That Matter”, which bring together our money and our life, and help us to consider the steps we can take at home, at work and in society to build a secure and fair financial future for everyone.

This event is open to all staff and students.

Jane Portas is a financial expert, author of The Risks in Life Series of award-winning insight reports and financial wellbeing guides, and the creator of 6 Moments That Matter, a unique life-stage approach to help people and organisations to improve fair financial futures. Now a portfolio director, she is a former ‘big 4’ professional services partner where for 30 years she advised financial services firms on strategy, governance, risk, regulation, and customer matters. She is a member of Women’s Business Council, advisor to the charity Surviving Economic Abuse, and a co-founder of Insuring Women’s Futures.

The session will be facilitated by Jenny Rampling, Chair of the University of Cambridge Women’s Staff Network, member of the Women in Higher Education Network team and Senior Programme Co-ordinator, ourcambridge.

This is an the fourth of four online AbilityNet sessions looking at digital accessibility, specifically how to understand the results of accessibility evaluations and testing results.

The new Web Accessibility regulations require Universities to conduct audits and testing across all their digital estates, form websites to learning environments. These tests can be carried out by external contractors or your own in-house teams (see Workshop 3 for how to do this yourself)

Although built around common standards such as WCAG2.1, many people find accessibility test results and audit reports difficult to understand. Automatically generated reports or expert audits can produce a list of issues that need prioritising. Organisations must also decide how these accessibility barriers are communicated through their accessibility statement and how they can remediate them in the future.

This session is aimed at anyone creating, managing or procuring digital content or systems. It will also be of value as an introductory session for developers and eLearning content creators looking to develop accessibility skills. While not compulsory, it is strongly recommended that attendees attend the session “Introduction to accessibility testing” if they have no prior knowledge of accessibility tests.

“Values are the beliefs that are important to us about the way we interact with each other, how we work together effectively towards common goals and the behaviours that we demonstrate and expect to see from our colleagues.” (Emma Rampton, Registrary)

The ourcambridge Supporting our Staff team have developed this session, to provide a follow up to the very popular ‘What do you value in life?’ workshop. In the first session, participants identified their own personal values and considered what they might mean for how they lived their life and went about their work. In this follow up session, participants will reflect further on their personal values and participate in some exercises that will help them to identify further positive actions they can take to achieve closer alignment to their values in a supportive and motivating environment.

A Mindful Wander Around Clare Hall new Mon 4 Jul 2022   12:00   [More dates...] [Full]

Join Clare Hall in a guided (or self-guided) mindful wander and outdoor meditation, enjoying the College’s beautiful grounds and gardens. Mindfulness is about purposely paying attention in the present moment, noticing our surroundings and what we are doing, rather than being caught in thinking about the past or future. You’re warmly invited to take in the sights, sounds and fragrances of Clare Hall’s green spaces this summertime. The guided session will begin with mindful sculpture sketching and tree gazing, before heading over to West Court for a short guided meditation, after which participants will be free to roam our gardens.

Detail on activities:

Mindful sculpture sketching: we will provide paper and pens for a short mindful sketching exercise, in which participants are invited not to look at the paper and to simply look very closely at a sculpture and sketch what they most notice. You may be surprised by your creation!

Tree gazing: walking along Herschel Road we will pause and look carefully at the large, leafy trees, listening to any sounds and wildlife we may notice.

Guided meditation: once at West Court we will lay down or sit on the grass and a Clare Hall staff member will invite attendees to follow a short guided body scan meditation, focusing on the face, shoulders, hands and feet as applicable.

Free to roam: once we have completed the above activities, you are very welcome to wander our gardens and grounds freely, leaving at a time to best suit your schedule.

Self-guided option: You can also enjoy a self-guided wander if you’d prefer to practice mindfulness solo or with your friends. Please sign up via Eventbrite to receive a digital copy of the Mindful Wander guide, or pick up a paper copy from our Porters’ Lodge.

Please wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water or other refreshment with you.

Clare Hall is a college for advanced study at the University of Cambridge, located close to the University Library and neighbouring Robinson College.

Recent technological advances have made it possible to obtain genome-wide transcriptome data from single cells using high-throughput sequencing (scRNA-seq). Even though scRNA-seq makes it possible to address problems that are intractable with bulk RNA-seq data, analysing scRNA-seq is also more challenging.

In this course we will be surveying the existing problems as well as the available computational and statistical frameworks available for the analysis of scRNA-seq.
