Browne Jacobson shortlisted for the UK Social Mobility Awards

16 July 2021

Browne Jacobson has been shortlisted in the Innovation category in the fifth annual UK Social Mobility Awards 2021.

The firm is shortlisted alongside Clifford Chance, Linklaters, CMS, Newcastle University and Pitney Bowes.

The awards provide an opportunity to recognise organisations who are making strides and creating initiatives to advance social mobility within their own workforce or beyond their own walls. By demonstrating best practice and celebrating those who are raising awareness and creating opportunities, together we can advance social mobility throughout the UK.

The SOMOs were the first national awards dedicated to social mobility, recognising the forward-thinking organisations that are working to progress social mobility. Organised by social justice charity, Making The Leap, this year’s awards have received an impressive array of entries comprises a variety of sectors from across different regions – the shortlist represents those who have best demonstrated the efficacy of their social mobility initiatives. The winners will be determined by our independent judging panel, made up of leading figures from business, charity and the public sector, and chaired by Sir Ken Olisa OBE. They will be announced at the awards gala on 14th October 2021.

Sir Ken Olisa OBE, who is also the HM Lord Lieutenant of London, said:

“The war against Covid-19 has shown just how strong our nation is when we pull together. It has also shown how ‘we’ means people from every walk of life, heritage and ability. There can be no greater proof of the power of social mobility. Now that its value is beyond dispute ‘we’ must pull out all of the stops to make social mobility a reality – even in peacetime.
