Meet the Professionals
The Careers Service and the Alumni Relations team are running a Meet the Professionals event next Tues 15 Nov 17:00–19:30, in Collab 1 in the Kilburn Building. You can meet University of Manchester alumni who are now working in the area of IT and/or Computing. It will be held in a speed networking format, with groups of students meeting a different alumnus/alumna every 10 minutes. The formal networking lasts an hour and then you'll be able to network more informally with the alumni volunteers over pizza and soft drinks. Advance registration required.
Making a Difference Fair and First Aid CPR Training
Come along to a First Aid CPR session or the Making a Difference Fair on Tuesday 29th November to join in the activities for the third #GivingTuesday, a national day of giving, encouraging people to consider giving time, money or support to a worthwhile cause at a time of year when society in the UK tends to become consumed with parties, looking good and buying material things for people who often already have a lot.
The Making a Difference Fair, showcasing a variety of organisations where you can volunteer, in the Renold Building Concourse between 11.30am and 2pm, or pop along to a CPR session in your lunchbreak (between 12-2) in the Barnes Wallis Building to learn some lifesaving first aid skills.
Some of the organisations represented are:
Green Impact – NUS Scheme to encourage environmental sustainability
SPORT –many opportunities need no sporting skill or experience
Students Union Access All Areas and RAG
Kaya Volunteering – International Volunteering opportunities
Wood Street Mission (local charity supporting families)
UMBUG (University Bicycle User Group)
Students and staff from the whole University are welcome to attend and if you speak to any of the providers and complete the evaluation you could even win a £50 High Street Gift Voucher.

Practically everyone uses Wikipedia – but have you ever tried adding to it? Women are sorely under-represented in editing and contributing to Wikipedia articles, and Manchester Girl Geeks aim to shift the balance with their Voting For Change edit-a-thon. They're teaming up with the People's History Museum and the Working Class Movement Library to acquire material related to the fight for the vote, and then share this knowledge on Wikipedia. Helpers from Wikimedia UK and Manchester Girl Geeks will be on hand to help you learn and develop editing skills. Free event this Sunday 20 Nov.
