For our next Family Forum event in October our theme will be ‘The Sandwich Generation’: people who are caring at the same time for both ageing relatives and dependent children. We will be joined by Professor Debora Price, journalist and broadcaster Fiona Phillips, and a third speaker who is to be confirmed, to discuss these modern challenges.
Newnham is unique amongst Cambridge Colleges in discussing contemporary issues affecting families, in particular mothers.
Each October we host a lively forum where everyone can explore complex topics and learn from experts in specific fields (as well as from each other). We encourage an atmosphere of inclusivity and welcome alumnae and their guests, male or female, to join us.
Subjects to date have included:
- Mental Health and Young People
- Modern Families in the 21st Century
- The Challenges of Raising Teenagers
- Issues Affecting Working Mothers
