There’s no doubt that the work we do has a positive role to play in terms of boosting social mobility for young people. We’re therefore delighted to have been accepted as one of only six Social Mobility Pledge partners, in this important campaign chaired by Rt Hon Justine Greening.
The Social Mobility Pledge is a coalition of 450 organisations globally employing over 5 million people, as well as more than 50 universities representing almost 2 million students. It encourages organisations to be a force for good by putting social mobility at the heart of their purpose. Organisations taking steps to boost opportunity and social mobility is more important than ever as we face the challenges of a growing opportunity gap in the wake of COVID-19.
We hope businesses will choose to partner with us as part of their social mobility pledge enabling us to engage many more young people.
