There has been a real emphasis on improving equality in the workforce with many employers focused on Diversity and Inclusion. In more recent times, social mobility and socio-economic diversity has been at the forefront of this. Employers can, and should, be doing more to help people from all backgrounds succeed in the workplace.
VMAGROUP is delighted to be joined by three brilliant speakers, all experts in their field, who will discuss the importance of socio-economic diversity, before taking part in a Q&A. Join us to find out more about this ever important subject and how you can improve socio-economic mobility in your organisation.
