On 7-8 March we hosted a cross-sector, round-table conference on ‘Shaping Social Mobility: Education & Employment’. 

The conference brought together a diverse delegation of academics, policymakers, young people and future leaders, business representatives and teachers to better understand the underlying issues around social mobility and rethink best ways to improve it from a cross-sector, interdisciplinary perspective. 

The key themes of discussion, cross-sector recommendations, and examples of best practice from this conference will be presented in a Cumberland Lodge Report on ‘Shaping Social Mobility: Education & Employment’.

The report will be authored by our independent freelance Research Associate, Esme Lillywhite, and published later this year.
