2023 State of the Nation report: People and Places

Join us at this online event where our Chair, Alun Francis OBE, will be discussing our 2023 State of the Nation report: People and Places, charting the evolving social mobility landscape across the United Kingdom.  

This event will give you an opportunity to find out more about:

  • How our State of the Nation report extends and builds on the work we started in 2022 and contains important new elements – looking at full mobility outcomes, intermediate (early-life) outcomes, and drivers, with breakdowns by geography and personal characteristics.
  • Our accompanying policy vision and recommendations 
  • Our new Data Explorer Tool – this new Tool is a unique interactive system which will be  a game-changer for policy makers addressing regional inequality and social mobility. It will allow information on income, occupation and education to be broken down by regions, ethnicity, gender and disability.
  • Finally, we will be revealing our Business Plan 2023/2024. In this report, we will be setting out what the SMC hopes to achieve over the following year, how it intends to do this and, most importantly, what our areas for policy focus will be for the year ahead.   

This event is for policy makers, government officials, educators, business leaders and employers, charities and individuals who, like the Social Mobility Commission, are committed to making a difference for people across the UK – to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to thrive irrespective of their background or the place they grew up.
