Our half-day Social Mobility Conference will demonstrate the importance of improving this key area. More than that, this event will give practical information on how to implement a social mobility strategy in your firm, and will give examples of the benefits to the business, as well as individuals.

The programme features keynote speakers from across the region, insightful discussions from a panel with a range of experiences and case studies of success and challenges.

We all have to come together collectively and strive for a more equal future for all. Businesses and leaders have a key role to play in helping to create social mobility and we need to stand up and take action to create a more socioeconomic and ethnically diverse workplace.

So why not join us at our landmark Social Mobility Conference on 17 March 2022? This conference is held as a partnership event between Squire Patton Boggs and Manchester Law Society, and will be of benefit to everybody, but in particular HR, diversity and inclusion officers, training partners and senior management.
