Leading for Impact

Leading for Impact is a programme exclusively offered to University of Oxford postgraduate students. The programme will help exceptional individuals who are committed to social impact develop as effective leaders.

This is a rewarding programme that involves a substantial time commitment as it combines a 2.5 day weekend intensive with 4 peer coaching sets and a closing workshop session. The programme takes place over the Hillary term and allows for personal development for those individuals who are working to solve real-world challenges.

  • Are you eager to develop your personal leadership skills?
  • Are you excited to be a part of a community that is dedicated to impact?
  • Then, this programme is made for YOU.

We seek applications from:

  • Students who are eager to learn about and commit to social impact careers who also wish to develop their personal leadership and teamwork skills.
  • Graduate students across Oxford who are preparing for their next career move who have a clear commitment to social impact careers.
  • People who are looking for a group of like-minded Doers, and want to be an active part of this community.


Here is what some of our 2017 Leading for Impact Fellows had to say about their experience:

'The whole weekend was beyond super. It was very interactive, interesting and inspiring. Meeting all the fellow LFI members and connecting with them and the team was very nice. The facilitators made interacting with each other easier and made us all feel comfortable enough to be vulnerable enough to share information and experiences together. I really enjoyed the weekend and felt it was nothing less than perfect.'

'Moving out of our normal context and surroundings really has value in terms of creating a restorative and reflective space.'

'I really enjoy reading the 360 feedback reports, which has given me so much to reflect on. Connecting it to the action learning session was definitely valuable, as it gave us the chance to truly work on the kind of questions we should ask to help someone arrive at their action plans as well as what questions we should ask ourselves to get to those.'
