Event description

Description

To mark a year since the launch of its inaugural Social Mobility Action Plan, MoJ is hosting five exciting half-day events in November which will explore how the department, the Civil Service and external partners are helping individuals from all backgrounds to achieve their potential.

The events are:

Glasgow (Institute of Engineering & Technology: Teacher Building) (20/11/18)

Liverpool (Merseyside Maritime Museum) (22/11/18)

Nottingham (Albert Hall Conference Centre) (27/11/18)

Swansea (DVLA, Richard Ley Development Centre) (28/11/18)

London (BEIS Conference Centre) (29/11/18)

Each event will feature interactive discussions with a panel senior officials, local leaders and industry experts, as well as personal stories from individuals who have engaged with MoJ’s social mobility programme.

In 2018, MoJ placed third on the Social Mobility Foundation Employer Index – a leap from 14th in 2017. Our social mobility programme aims to shape the future of how we work, recruit and support our staff. This is your chance to join that discussion, share your views and learn more about the steps we are taking to become the UK’s most inclusive employer by 2020.
