Socio-economic diversity and inclusion

Take the lead in helping drive social progress

Social Mobility Employers Masterclass Progression

Thu, 26 May 2021 13:00 – 14:30 GMT
Our next Masterclass is looking at progression - in particular, the importance of understanding who is 'getting on' within your organisation based on their socio-economic background. Join us to learn what steps you can take to support your employees throughout their careers, from providing equal access to opportunities and removing any artificial barriers to progression. We'll be joined by the Cabinet Office and KPMG who will be sharing their experiences with us.

What is social mobility and what can it do for your business?

Whether you lead a manufacturing company or a professional services firm, the performance, productivity and commitment of your staff is key to your organisation’s success. Yet businesses across the country are missing opportunities to recruit, promote and retain some of the most talented and driven people in our country.

Make your data the foundation of good strategy

A toolkit designed to help you progress with social mobility

Our toolkit will help you progress from making an initial commitment, such as taking the Social Mobility Pledge to becoming an industry leader like those ranked in the Social Mobility Employer Index and those celebrated at events like the Social Mobility Awards.


“When I was starting on my legal journey, I was told that I wouldn’t become a lawyer because I didn’t go to the right university and I didn’t get the highest grades. Overcoming these barriers has not been easy.

Employers have a role to play here. But you aren’t alone. Give this toolkit a go and let us know how we can further help your organisation with this important agenda.”

Sandra Wallace

Social Mobility Commissioner and Managing Director at DLA Piper
