UK Social Mobility Awards.
Making The Leap, along with our partners, launched the first national awards event dedicated to social mobility in 2017. Now going into their sixth 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.
The 2022 Awards launched with the fifth annual Social Mobility Business Seminar in March. The nominations for 2022 submissions opened in April, and close on the 24th June. Once entries are in, these 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 during an in-person gala on 13th October, 2022. You can find out more about entering the SOMOs 2022 here.
We invite you to take a look at our website 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.
