We hosted a fantastic session yesterday morning with the The Bridge Group, discussing approaches to increasing social mobility. Great to see this high on the agenda for so many.
Back in December 2017, The Bridge Group released this report based on a study of Access Accountancy and how the accounting profession was increasing its focus on creating equality for those from different socio economic backgrounds.
Keep and eye out for their next report on the professions which will put this important issue further into the spotlight.
"boosting socio-economic diversity is not a simple task. It demands robust analysis and evidence to inform and evaluate any action, which is why Access Accountancy commissioned this analysis. Rigorous evaluation of this kind will ensure our efforts are producing results and help pool our collective energy, influence and evidence in pursuit of improved diversity. This cross-sector collaboration is unmatched in its scope and is testament to the commitment from the profession to address an issue and help create an environment where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.”
