Real Icons of Change

Event Profile

Real Icons of Change (RIOC) is a ten part lecture series conceived by Social Access Communications to reach out to the leaders of tomorrow.


Real Icons of Change are people who have achieved great heights through high levels of personal endeavour
They are inspiration to young people to overcome fears and limitations even in their day-to-day life
They are not Bollywood or cricket celebrities with a high glamour quotient, but ‘ordinary’ people who have demonstrated great physical and mental powers


The series takes groups of three RIOC’s on a national tour of premier educational institutions over a ten month period
We have a bank of ten RIOC’s ranging from a swami who saves the Ganga, to the world’s first woman amputee who scaled Mt Everest, to India’s first circumnavigator, to a man who is walking the length and breadth of the country to raise funds for causes, to a lawmaker who brought about the ban on smoking etc
RIOC was inaugurated at Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA) on July 27, 2013
The second programme is scheduled at Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai on September 4, 2013, and the third at Indian Institute of Management, Kolkata, on 27, September, 2013
