Project Details


A body of evidence demonstrates that elite professions in the UK are highly exclusive on the basis of social background. This study was commissioned by the government’s Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission (SMCPC) with the aim of exploring what can be done by practitioners and policy-makers to expedite the pace of change and ensure that access to and progression within elite professions becomes more equitable across social backgrounds.
