Access Accountancy pleased to support Social Mobility Awareness Day

Access Accountancy is pleased to support the first Social Mobility Awareness Day, which takes place today (Thursday 16 June 2022).

The initiative was set up to promote wider conversations about social mobility and to celebrate organisations committed to bringing about positive change.

The theme for 2022 is focused on asking ‘what is social mobility?’. The day’s organisers have encouraged people to share their experiences with social mobility, whether a personal journey or workplace initiative. It is hoped that sharing these experiences will create momentum for the movement, and inspire and encourage others to consider how they are going to put social mobility on their agenda.

Sharon Spice, Chair of Access Accountancy, said:

“Our mission is to boost access to the profession, particularly for young people from lower socio-economic backgrounds who may not have thought about accountancy.

“We know there is more to do to make accountancy inclusive and diverse, and that’s why firms and organisations across the sector set up Access Accountancy and are taking action to drive change.

“We’re pleased to support Social Mobility Awareness Day, and we’ll continue to work with our members to create a profession which truly reflects the society it serves.”
