Be inspired to make change in 2020

24 March 2020 | 08:30 – 11:00 |
Beacon of Light | Stadium Park | Sunderland SR5 1SN

 

You are cordially invited to show your commitment to social mobility by attending our upcoming interactive event in your region. This is an unmissable event designed to introduce you to our new employer’s toolkit.

 

“The tools you will be given are both practical and proven. They work. They can be simple, low cost and relatively easy to do. And the rewards can be immense -not just to the individual, but also to the business.”

– Steven Cooper, Social Mobility Commissioner and CEO of C. Hoare and Co

 

The first of its kind, the employer’s toolkit is a practical guide which has been developed by the Bridge Group in close partnership with the Social Mobility Commission and a wide range of industry leaders to help transform your organisation’s culture.

This event has been specifically shaped to provide you:

  • Exclusive access to the toolkit
  • Knowledge and experience from our guest speakers
  • Practical application through a working session, collectively sharing and shaping ideas to take solutions back to your organisations

 

Together we can improve social mobility.

 

“Employers have a role to play here. But you aren’t alone. Join us and others to learn together and help your organisation with this important agenda.”

– Sandra Wallace, Social Mobility Commissioner and Managing Director at DLA Piper

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.
