Social Mobility Employers Masterclass Series: Outreach

On 23 July we will be holding the first in a series of Masterclasses especially designed for employers – exploring how to reach, attract and foster a diverse pool of talent.

The first in this series, Outreach, is all about reaching that talent – attracting individuals from less privileged backgrounds who may not traditionally apply for roles within your organisation, yet may be able to make a significant contribution in future. It is aimed at employers in any industry, predominantly decision makers – Head of HR, Head of D&I.

  • Introduction to Outreach by the Social Mobility Commission
  • Case-study from Santander, delving into their outreach practices
  • Employer workshop in which to explore ideas, share insights and discuss challenges

On the back of the workshop we will be sharing a check-list to help you refine your ideas and develop a ‘best-practice’ outreach programme.

We hope that you will be able to join us for what should be an informative and inspiring session.

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.
