Start making an impact. Begin with yourself.

Being a leader takes strategic acumen. The ability to make decisions and to engage others. But it also takes a keen self-awareness and emotional intelligence. And that is precisely what the BE Phase of the Leading for Impact Program is all about.

Its aim lies in empowering you to further your emotional development – by providing you with the opportunity to take leadership roles within and outside of the program, through peer-coaching and with extensive mentoring.

You’ll get to benefit from the support of a university-wide community and the global network of the Skoll Centre for Social entrepreneurship whilst also making your own valuable contribution to the learning goals of your peers and the wider University of Oxford community.
