Social mobility and poverty in the UK: How responsible business can respond — BITC event

You are warmly invited to Business in the Community’s next West Midlands event, which is being hosted by Coventry University.

The event is aimed at businesses, community groups, educational establishments and public-sector organisations to encourage an inclusive and wide-ranging debate.

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation will open by sharing the reality of poverty and lack of social mobility in the UK. Speakers from BITC member businesses will explain why this issue is important to them and how they are helping to change outcomes for those that need it most.

As employers and partners to local schools, businesses are in a strong position to have an impact on people’s futures. What are the issues? How might businesses help tackle them? How can impact be measured?

The event takes place at Coventry University (Engineering & Computing Building, 1 Gulson Rd, Coventry CV1 2JH) from 13:30 to 16:30 on Tuesday 5th June 2018.
