Both Jason Blackstock and Alana Heath believe passionately that students and early-career professionals need and deserve the right support to develop their impactful careers at speed. This belief comes from personal experience: the founders of How to Change the World each followed their own winding paths to get to where they are today, learning through hands-on experience how real change is made.
Impact has been Alana's guiding north star since she was seventeen. Her career has seen her go from the world of ballet to microfinance and impact investing, working across the US, Europe and Africa before joining How to Change the World as Co-founder.
Jason started his career as a quantum physicist and technologist in Silicon Valley. His passion for building bridges between technology and people took him to University College London, where he designed and launched the original How to Change the World course.
