Social Mobility: How Business Can Bridge the Class Divide
15.30 - 16.30
Success in modern Britain still depends too much on where you came from, not how talented you are. Are people of equal ability receiving the same opportunities to be rewarded for their talent and effort, regardless of their background? Are the policymakers and businesses concerned with improving diversity overlooking socioeconomic – or class – diversity? This panel will discuss the value of diversity in business and what more government and employers can do to promote social mobility.
