What I See project comes to Lucy Cavendish College

by Jeanette Ariano, Marketing Manager on 14 June 2014


Now that we have come to the end of the current academic year, and Graduations have just taken place, we are reflecting on the interesting events and partnerships that have been developed. One of the highlights of the year has been the visit by the What I See team to film the President, students and Fellows at Lucy Cavendish College.

The What I See Project is the brainchild of Edwina Dunn, a very successful global entrepreneur, who came to speak at the Women in Leadership event here. Edwina is also a generous supporter What I See Projectof the College. Even though she is a successful entrepreneur and a powerful role model in her own right, Edwina didn't feel that she was being heard as much as men in the boardroom, so she became passionate about amplifying women's voices. She established The What I See Project, as a completely non-commercial interest, to celebrate the inspiring women from everyday life whose stories would otherwise go unacknowledged. She wanted to share the real and honest stories from women about their achievements, struggles, and inner thoughts, and to allow them to express themselves freely through a website that appreciates them for who they really are.

Obviously we were delighted to welcome Edwina and the What I See team to Lucy Cavendish to film members of the Lucy Cavendish community and other key women from the University of Cambridge. It was a fascinating day and a great opportunity to meet up and discuss the issues. A very fruitful collaboration and an thoroughly enjoyable day with remarkable women.

The What I See project aims to try and get ambassadors from across all fields and has filmed notable academics, business women, women from the acting and theatre world, and is always looking to widen the network. The President of Lucy Cavendish College, Professor Janet Todd OBE, is now one of the ambassadors, as you will see here and below:
