UK Social Mobility Awards
Making The Leap, along with our partners, launched the first national awards event dedicated to social mobility in 2017. Now in their third year, the UK Social Mobility Awards are about making the advancement of social mobility a key part of how organisations are run in this country. At our annual awards ceremony in October, we recognise and celebrate the efforts of the people and organisations that are leading the way in this endeavour.
This year’s awards launched with a Social Mobility Business Seminar in March. Nominations opened on 29th April and closed on 28th June, 2019. Entries are judged by a prestigious panel made up of leading figures from business, politics, charity and the public sector, and are chaired by Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE, Chair of Restoration Partners. The winners will be announced at a gala dinner, held at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, on 10th October, 2019. You can view last year’s winners here.
We invite you to take a look at our website – https://uksomo.com/ – which contains further information on the awards and will be regularly updated with latest news. There are also a range of sponsorship opportunities – an excellent way to position your brand as a champion of social mobility.
