Voice Workshop 1 new [Full] 12:30 - 13:30

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.

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

Dr Theresa (Terri) Simpkin BBA (HRM), BCom (Hons), PhD, PGCert(HE), MCIPD, CPHR, Churchill Fellow Terri Simpkin is an industry experienced academic, educator, researcher, public speaker and an authority on the impostor phenomenon.

Terri is an Associate Professor and Head of MBA Programmes (Int’l) at the University of Nottingham and a Visiting Fellow at Anglia Ruskin University. Her current research interest has developed into ‘Braver Stronger Smarter’ – a suite of initiatives designed to address personal and structural issues leading to workplace inequity and the under-representation of women in leadership, STEM occupations and higher education. As CEO of her own company, Mischief Business Engineering, she has worked globally with governments, industry associations, large and small business and is an accomplished international academic manager.
