Reflections on Researching Social Mobility

Moriarty, J. (Invited speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


The Northern Ireland Equality Commissioner, in cooperation with Alexander Mann Solutions, hosted a "Social Mobility Roundtable" to explore how businesses can achieve greater class diversity in the workforce. I was invited to present ongoing work on social mobility using linked data from Northern Ireland. Over 30 industry leaders were in attendance representing both private and public sector employers. Questions and discussion ranged from the broad, e.g. how to avoid furthering inequalities through educational initiatives or apprenticeship schemes, to local issues such as the long-term effect of replacing the 11+ transfer test.
