The University operates in a largely decentralised manner. You should therefore take every opportunity to meet experienced colleagues who will be able to introduce you to a valuable network of contacts. This is partly the function of the mentoring arrangements in your institution, but you may also wish to become involved in, and benefit from contact with, a wider range of issues and topics.
People in Cambridge are very used to working in this way, and you are strongly encouraged to develop as many work-linked and social contacts as you can throughout the University and the Colleges.
There is a women's network in the University operating through a number of different organisations. Information about these is given on a factsheet, available from the Human Resources Division.
