Social Mobility Employers Masterclass Data

Thu, 25 Mar 2021 14:00 – 15:30 GMT

#SMFIndex2021 submissions are now open! ➡️ https://lnkd.in/gxCpbbG

Now entering its fifth year, the #Index has become the leading authority on best practice. It’s a great starting point for #employers new to social mobility.

PwC took the top spot last year, with an impressive array of initiatives – delivered virtually during the #pandemic.

It’s free of charge, you can enter anonymously, and your organisation will receive a comprehensive #audit.
