Learn by Design have joined over 7 million companies and universities in making our Social Mobility Pledge. Taking a powerful and pioneering shift towards being a truly purpose-led organisation committed to social mobility.
The Social Mobility Pledge campaign is chaired by Rt Hon Justine Greening, drawing especially on her experience as United Kingdom’s Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women & Equalities. Justine is a leading advocate for social mobility and the Social Mobility Pledge is the largest business campaign of its kind.

It is a straightforward step that any organisation can take, and you will be joining a coalition of 500 organisations. Organisations taking these steps to boost opportunity and social mobility are playing a part in closing the growing opportunity gap in the wake of COVID-19.
