How it Happens
The annual programme includes workshops and seminars; residentials; lectures; a regular reflection and reading group PAUSE; opportunities for mentoring and coaching; and a summer ‘Challenge Fund’. This year sees the launch of 12 online modules Changemaker Sketches. Each is designed to help build your personal stability and high-performance in the challenging context of Covid-19. Topics include quietude; epistemic agility; understanding and removing limiting assumptions; and getting things done (the first tranche will be available in Michaelmas).
The programme is modular so you can dip in and out whenever and however you wish. And you can choose what to focus on - from social innovation and entrepreneurialism to systems thinking and tools for high-performance. Every element works to build your toolkit, heighten your understanding, and move you from the personal to the societal. It’s also a great way to work with people from other disciplines and year groups, and to extend your network of like-minded, visionary folks.
Changemakers draws on a network of brilliant innovators, academics, philanthropists, professionals, and entrepreneurs to offer the programme, building a courage-motivated community of people within college and beyond. Led by Dr Alison Wood (Director) Changemakers is supported by Dr Soraya Jones (Programme Lead), a Steering Group, the Changemakers Ambassadors and Academic Advisory.
Changemakers is open to all Homerton students and recent (2019+) leavers
