Womens Community Leadership Course

Hammersmith United Charities with its partners, Imperial College London, Hammersmith & Fulham Council and the Lyric Hammersmith are delighted to celebrate International Womens Day and to make a contribution to #pressforprogress by announcing that we shall soon be launching the Hammersmith and Fulham Womens community leadership course.


Agents for Change is an innovative new programme which will launch in 2018 in the Hammersmith and Fulham area.

It has come about as a direct result of a question raised at Hammersmith United Charity’s celebration of International Women’s Day in 2017. Following a discussion with Professor Maggie Dallman from Imperial College and Sian Alexander from the Lyric Theatre, a member of the audience asked if there was a local community based womens’ leadership programme. This is the result.

The programme will launch with a pilot course in the late Spring. The free course will be open to any local woman aged 18+ who wants to develop her leadership skills with the support of other local women..

Last week we celebrated the launch of Agents for Change, the new women's leadership programme developed in partnership by Hammersmith United Charities, London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, Imperial College London and Lyric Hammersmith.Professor Maggie Dallman tells us how the idea of the programme became reality!Music: https://www.bensound.com
