Newnham Associates are an elected group of 60 Newnham alumnae, representing all subjects, broad life experiences, and most career routes and industry sectors. 

Current Newnham students and recent graduates are welcome to contact any Associate for help or advice. 

There is a contact form under each person's profile here, which will send an email directly to that individual Associate.

Do click through to LinkedIn profiles wherever they are available - there's often a lot more information there.
