Personal and Professional Development


Diane Gorsky

Diane joined the PPD team to launch and implement ‘Academic Life at Cambridge’, an updated approach to academic induction and career support. Key features include:

  • A Welcome event highlighting strategic context, culture and values of the University
  • Self-directed/modular resources, courses and events (signposted and mapped to Academic Career Pathways criteria)
  • An approach to mentorship that is implemented locally, with central guidance and support

Recognising that induction is an important step in the recruitment process, Diane works with Schools, Departments and Faculties to improve the coordination of central and local elements to create a positive learning and development experience.
