Event description

Description

Impact Women’s Network is a network of female professionals united in raising the public visibility of impactful women and instigating even greater change together, beyond individuals and individual organisations. Challenging the status quo, inter-generational communication, breaking glass ceilings and flying off glass cliffs - these are just some of the issues we tackle together when Impact Women’s Network meets the first Wednesday of every month at various locations in Cambridge, from 9-11am. These morning meetings are grounded in women sharing their expertise as well as their experience through Impact Talks and group activities and discussions.

In recognition of International Men’s Day, our November ImpactWednesday event is a mixed session for men as well as our core female members.

November 6th theme:

The problem with conflict in the workplace is that there’s just not enough of it!

With thanks to our host and sponsor: Mills & Reeve LLP

The male/female dynamic is never more complex than at work. In this special session, we will be looking at the neuroscience behind how our brains react to conflict, learning why so many of us try to avoid conflict and how a lack of it can often be a problem for teams as well as discovering how beneficial conflict can actually be. With tips on how to deal with conflict, this really is a session not to be missed!
