The Equality Trust has responded to today's publication of the Social Mobility Index, which announced the top 50 UK employers taking the most action to improve social mobility in the workplace. Dr.Wanda Wyporska, Executive Director of The Equality Trust, said:
"It's encouraging to see some firms are taking the initiative on social mobility, but it's clear we need to go much further. Many professions like journalism, law and politics are still dominated by the rich. Where those from poorer backgrounds do squeeze in, they often face a pay gap with their wealthier colleagues.
