Business and education: breaking down barriers for the next generation

Business & Professional

Join CIPD for a FREE event on how you can use your skills and senior-level expertise to support the next generation and learn how to break down barriers into the world of work.

With the world of work changing rapidly, employers need an inclusive approach to employment that is fit for the next generation. CIPD’s recent research Diversity management that works: an evidence-based view, highlights biases in recruitment processes which can hamper diversity.

Working with schools, businesses can make recruitment processes transparent and attractive to young people, no matter what their background or experience.

 This event will give you an opportunity to engage in the important conversation around inclusive recruitment and find out about the Enterprise Adviser Network which is enabling leaders from the world of work to tackle these challenges. The social mobility programme is delivered in conjunction with Team London and The Careers & Enterprise Company, and connects leaders from the world of work with a local school or college.

The event:

  • Enjoy an engaging evening with peers from the People Profession sector.

  • Learn about recruitment through an inclusive lens from an experienced panel and hear from a CIPD policy expert.
  • Join the movement, be a strategic force in shaping Careers Curriculum for students by being an Enterprise Adviser.

  • Meet and network with current Enterprise Advisers and hear about their successes and challenges on the programme.

  • Bring a friend or a colleague and inspire them to join the growing Enterprise Adviser Network.

  • Food and Drinks will be provided. 

Could you be our next Enterprise Adviser?

  • Drawing on your experience, you’ll be working at a senior level, helping to shape and drive forward a school or college’s careers strategy.

  • You’ll have an established network and willingness to forge new connections whilst acting as a champion for business engagement with young people.

This is a fantastic development opportunity for emerging leaders, so please do feel free to share it.

We look forward to meeting you on 20 November. In the meantime you can read more about the role here. If you have any queries, please contact [email protected]

Many thanks
