The fourth annual Social Mobility Business Seminar will be held, for the first time, online on Wednesday 21st April, and will be the first event in the UK Social Mobility Awards 2021 calendar!
The opening address at the event will be from Nadhim Zahawi MP, Parliamentary Undersecretary of State for Business and Industry and Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for COVID Vaccine Deployment. This will then be followed by speeches from leading social mobility advocates and champions, as well as a panel discussion around the business case for social mobility, under the seminar theme of ‘Social Mobility in the time of crisis’. The event will then come to an end following a time for interactive audience Q&A.
Over the last year, there have been an unprecedented number of challenges our economy has faced and this has proved to be a time where the efforts and contributions made to the social mobility movement were paramount. The Social Mobility Business Seminar is a great opportunity for forward-thinking UK organisations, businesses, and individuals to come together and proceed with the crucial conversations surrounding social mobility at this time. Progressing the visibility of the positive impact that the social mobility movement has on organisations, the seminar is a vital steppingstone allowing for the improvement of upward mobility across the UK.
The Seminar also enables a brilliant opportunity for these organisations and individuals, who are dedicating their attention to the issue of social mobility and to advancing the cause, to understand why they should enter the UK Social Mobility Awards 2021. The Awards recognise the work being done, help to inspire others, and celebrate organisations for the work they are doing to tackle barriers to social mobility. We encourage organisations to enter this year!
