Social Mobility – Delivering Real Change
Our Innovation Forums give participants the opportunity to hear from experts and practitioners working on various aspects of the diversity and inclusion agenda. According to the Social Mobility Foundation social diversity is now a priority for 3 in 4 employers who responded to the annual Social Mobility Employer Index 2018.
However the reality is that professional services, law firms, government departments and agencies and many other employers favour hires from Russell group universities and, whilst more apprenticeships are on offer, many are higher level /degree level requiring A level qualifications.
Our Innovation Forum will feature organisations who are successfully breaking through the barriers to social mobility.
Rachel Mitchel – Denson and Jo Wright from Keoghs LLP will talk about their work with a sector skill council and how they successfully recruit from the widest possible pool of candidates.
Chris Oliver from Leadership Through Sport & Business will share how their innovative approach to partnership working is enabling bright young people who face disadvantage to secure sustainable careers.
This will be followed by an interactive discussion where you will have the opportunity to work with representatives from different organisations to consider the implications of the information shared for your diversity and inclusion strategies, and to share insights from your own organisations
CIC partners will receive follow up information after the event.
