Social Mobility Employers Masterclass Series: Data


In the last of our masterclass series, we will be exploring Data with the Bridge Group. This session follows the launch of our new guidance, which makes measuring socio-economic diversity in the workplace easier than ever – we will also be providing you with insights from that work.

Data drives smart recruitment and will help shape your plans at every step, but measuring it accurately is often the biggest barrier that employers face. It doesn’t matter where you are on your journey – it is key to establishing what changes you may need to make to drive change. It also serves as a benchmark for measuring progress, and to celebrate any successes along the way.

This session will take the form of:

  • A presentation by the Social Mobility Commission, leading advocates for social mobility in England, on our newly released guidance.
  • Short case studies from the BBC, Clifford Chance, Compass Group and Fast Stream. These organisations are all at different ‘data maturity stages’.
  • A presentation by the Bridge Group, a non-profit consultancy that uses research to promote social equality. They will run though how best to use the data you collect.
  • An interactive workshop for employers in which to explore ideas, share insights and tackle some of the challenges.

We hope that you will be able to join us and thank you for being committed to driving real change in the social mobility space.

Social mobility and senior roles: why is it important?

14/11/2022

We were delighted to contribute to this article from d&i Leaders (Diversity and Inclusion Leaders), looking at why it’s important for social mobility that people don’t just ‘get in’ to organisations, but are also supported to ‘get on’ and progress in their careers.

Senior leaders from different socio-economic backgrounds have so much to offer organisations, and it’s great to see more and more people recognising the impact that diverse leadership can have.
