How can policy improve access to higher education? What are the responsibilities of employers in supporting social mobility? These are some of the themes and debates planned for the inaugural conference of the independent charity, The Bridge Group, sponsored by KPMG.

The conference will feature the latest research, evidence and practice, including keynote addresses with Q/A; panel debates; round table seminar discussions; and networking.

Headline speakers include Professor Dame Julia Goodfellow, (President of Universities UK and Vice Chancellor of the University of Kent), Greg Dyke (Chairman of the Football Association and the British Film Institute, Philanthropist) and The Rt Hon. Lord Willetts (Executive Chairman of Resolution Foundation, and Visiting Professor at King’s College).

Speakers will be joined by a range of experts to discuss policy issues, including CEM and Durham University’s Dr Helen Wareham who will share insight into how data can be used to assess, inform and improve social mobility.

The conference is sold-out, but outputs from the conference will be available on The Bridge Group website.
