Led by Dr Alison Wood (Academic Director), Changemakers is supported by Dr Soraya Jones (Director of Engagement and Operations), Jane Mumford (Programme Coordinator), a Steering Group, and a Student Ambassadors Group.
We also draw on a network of innovators, academics, philanthropists, professionals, and entrepreneurs to offer the programme, building a courage-motivated community of people within the College and beyond.
Academic Advisory Group
Each year Homerton students can apply to become a Changemakers Ambassador. The Student Ambassadors Group meets once each term with the Academic Director and Senior Programme Lead, advising on all aspects of the Changemakers Programme. Ambassadors also have the chance to join Steering Group meetings and develop experience in governance; access bespoke leadership training and opportunities for volunteering; and gain support for their own initiatives and events if they wish.
The Network: Lecturers, Mentors and Champions
Changemakers benefits from an outstanding group of people - from business, politics, not-for-profits, the arts, medicine, sport, law, tech, academia and NGOS - who generously contribute hands-on to programme events, mentor students, and champion Changemaker work (and lively connections) in many sectors.

Homerton Changemakers Autumn Residential 25-30 Sep 2022 - ProgrammeHomerton Changemakers Autumn Residential 25-30 Sep 2022 - Programme
Changemakers has introduced me to a community of wonderful and inspiring people. Each Changemaker event I have attended has left me feeling energised and excited to tackle the big challenges our world is facing today. Having the right values, tools, attitude and people on my side has emboldened me to champion radical positive change.
"Homerton Changemakers is a brilliant and necessary invitation for us to raise our game as humans. To explore how to draw new maps for a world with a future.”
"Homerton Changemakers helped me realise how much push for change there currently is - the programme creates a supportive environment to channel it into proper changemaking."
"Making change by dissenting from old orthodoxies is Homerton’s DNA. At Homerton I learned how to be an agent of change rather than a passive bystander. That’s why I support Changemakers."
“Above all, I feel empowered by the opportunity that Changemakers have given me to deeply connect and exchange ideas with like-minded people of all ages and backgrounds - and a powerful reminder that it is up to our generation, each and every one of us, to make this world a better place to live in.”
