We have two engagement networks at Imperial that exist to share learning and collaboration in engagement across the College:

Societal Engagement Champions Network

Our Societal Engagement Champions Network includes two or more representatives from each academic department or institute – one from academia/research, and the other from professional services – as well as any departmental engagement practitioners. The network meets quarterly to discuss issues, updates and themes relevant to societal engagement, ranging from grant applications to equality, diversity and inclusion. The group also shares updates on engagement activities and opportunities to get involved. Members of this network champion the value and benefits of societal engagement within the College. They also act as a conduit between the central engagement teams and their department or team, helping to maintain connections, develop collaborative working and realise fundraising potential for engagement initiatives.

Engagement practitioners

The Engagement Practitioners Network

This network meets every two months and is made up of members of staff from across the College who have engagement as part or all of their role. The purpose of this network is to share updates and best practice, as well as calls for support/advice on engagement projects and potential collaborations.
