The annual d&i Leaders Social Mobility at Work Online Seminar brings together diversity, inclusion, HR, recruitment and talent professionals, committed to advancing social mobility in the workplace.

Those from high-earning families are more likely to end up at the best universities and in better paying jobs than their counterparts from low earning families. How do we ensure the opportunities open to a young person are not dependent on the economic and social position they were born into?

This unique online CPD accredited seminar will provide an opportunity to explore the crucial role employers have in improving social mobility.
