Agents of Change: Supporting Local Women to Drive Social Change

The Agents of Change Women’s Community Leadership Programme (WCLP) is a 6 month training course designed to support local women so they can drive positive social change. The programme delivered by the Invention Rooms at Imperial College is designed to address specific barriers that may prevent women from increasing and sustaining their impact, to empower themselves and their local communities.

One of the Agents of Change Programme

The Programme covers different aspects of leadership, project management and professional development. The training sessions exposes participants to networking, communication, influencing fundraising and evaluation to help boost the impact of local change and initiatives. The program is delivered by The Invention Room at the Imperial College White City Campus.

The latest cohort of 15 Agents are on to the fourth programme in January and are from diverse backgrounds. So far, the agents have learned about Leadership in Action with Lathi Dube from The Identity Dichotomy and explored Consciously Choosing to Create Change with Imperial Staff members.

Established in 2018, Agents of Change was developed by Imperial College London and local partners to support women in White City to achieve their ambitions. The programme is supported by a consortium of local institutions including the Hammersmith United Charites, Hammersmith and Fulham Council and The Lyric, all of who provide support infrastructure, such as access to mentors, speakers, community and business leaders,  industry experts, funding and venue space. It is one among the many programmes that form part of Imperial College’s commitment to working in partnership with our local communities to make an enduring and positive impact.

If you are interested in supporting local women through the sharing of knowledge, expertise and connections to help drive social change in the local communities, you can sign upto the Agents of Change Network. Members would have prioritised access to updates of their various networking events held at The Invention Rooms.
