We are 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
Our next Family Forum event in October will be titled ‘Sex, Sex and yet more Sex’. We will be focussing on the sexualisation of children and the increasingly sexualised media environment. We will be joined by experts in the field to discuss these modern challenges. You can see the programme for the day here.
You can book online for the Newnham Family Forum here.
