What is Leading Collective Impact?

Leading Collective Impact is a “rehearsal space” for leadership in action…

As part of our recent Leading Collective Impact programme, our participants have been on a journey deepening their inquiry around the theme of “diversity, equity and inclusion” and how they may lead collective impact in the arenas of which they are a part…Our participants identified an idea each of them want to take into the world that has the potential to create some shifts on “diversity, equity and inclusion.” Here, some of them share their experience…


There’s no better practice ground

Jacqueline Lim“There’s no better practice ground for the work of creating systems change than being and learning in community. A safe space to exercise our voice, and grow in confidence. Learning to hold space for others, and to take space. Growing through differences with others.”- Jacqueline Lim

Frequently Asked Questions

What is it?

Leading Collective Impact pushes the boundaries in leadership development, aiming to deepen the leadership capacity of participants to enable a more systemic, multi-stakeholder response to some of today’s most pressing challenges. Leading Collective Impact nurtures participants to grow confidence, purpose and authenticity as leaders leading change, collectively.

Why Diversity, Equity and Inclusion?

We invite participants to bring a challenge they are working on or are passionate about related to Diversity & Inclusion. This is a timely opportunity to go beyond a tick-box approach – and instead, respond wholeheartedly and sustainably to this challenge and take personal and collective action.

Participants will: 

  • Access a safe, peer-based space to explore the topic
  • Deepen their personal and collective understanding of the systemic inequalities that show up in their lives, their organisations, society and beyond
  • Reflect on the roles they have and can play to break down barriers
  • Learn from each other and explore collaborations as a cohort
  • Prototype “actions” for change – individually and with others
  • Leave with a set of tested strategies for moving forward on Diversity & Inclusion – personally, in their organisations, and beyond
Who is it for?

Everyone – from aspiring changemakers wanting to increase their confidence and find their voice, to experienced leaders wanting to expand their leadership capacity for leading systems change and enabling collective action.  Leading Collective Impact is for organisations wanting to respond well to today’s challenges and unlock more meaningful, multi-stakeholder action among teams or cross-departmental groups.  We invite women and their allies, from any sector, to apply.

What will I get?

  • Practical tools and hands on experience on leadership, stakeholder engagement and systems intervention

The world doesn’t change one person at a time. It changes when networks of relationships form among people who share a common cause and vision of what’s possible…. Through these relationships, we will develop the new knowledge, practices, courage and commitment that lead to broad-based change.

– Margaret Wheatley

I've proposed a new Inclusion Strategy

“I’m learning to step outside of my individual box in which I’m very comfortable. Taking extra steps to engage and consult on the new Inclusion Strategy I’ve proposed in my organisation, despite it meaning some difficult initial conversations, it has benefited the work enormously.”

Abby Crawford,  Equality Manager at the London Fire Brigade

Collective leadership is taking risks with support

“I’ve learnt that Collective Leadership requires you to step in and off the cliff, and when you do, you will be caught.”

Tessa Jennett, Founder of Lemonade, a charity supporting young people’s mental wellbeing.


I am already working differently and leading with more purpose.

“This journey alongside other amazing change-makers has taught me about courage, vulnerability, accountability and leadership.  I’m already working differently and leading with more purpose.”

Lamese Waterfield, Digital Manager


I am bringing in what might be considered ‘difficult’

“I built confidence in showing up in a more integrated way, and in bringing in what might be considered ‘difficult’ – to see this as, though uncomfortable, opening up the possibility for a different way of connecting, and co-creating a culture that I feel I can be part of.”

Elizabeth Stopford, Film-maker at White Rabbit Films.
