CMI Women’s ‘Our Inclusive Future’

In the UK, there are gaps in productivity, skills, and inclusivity, and evidence shows that these challenges are interlinked. To overcome them, it is crucial to prioritise recognising and supporting talent in all its forms with a sharp focus.

CMI research revealed that only a third of managers (34%) report mentoring and sponsorship programmes to champion the progression of women, and demonstrates the need for change within organisations to foster empowering work cultures.

On Thursday 16th May, CMI will be hosting a day of workshops and panel discussions with inspirational speakers, as they explore how to create inclusive workplaces. At this event, attendees will leave with the practical tools and strategies which they need to make a difference in their organisation.

We are pleased that our Commissioner, Resham Kotecha, will be joining one of these panels and discussing intersectionality between gender and socio-economic background.

By attending this event attendees will:

  • Hear from thought leaders on how we can address some of our biggest economic and public challenges
  • Understand the barriers into work and progression for individuals from different walks of life
  • Learn how to challenge and address gaps in their own workplace

You can find out how to register for either the in-person event or the virtual event.

Employers play a key role in #socialmobility outcomes for many.

They determine where they set up their business, the types of job roles they create, and how and who they recruit; the income set by employers impacts living standards, pension contributions, as well as spending power in their local economy; they also play an important role in the health and wellbeing of employees.

However, with each part of the UK having an individual identity, history and economy, impacting its local population and their opportunities, the challenges to social mobility, and the solutions, may differ from region to region.

That’s where we think the use of our new #Data Explorer tool can help – join us at this event on 7 June at 12pm for employers to find out how you can utilise our new tool to understand your workforce distribution; provide insight for outreach activity and hiring activity; and to serve and support regional communities.
