We need to take action on economic inequality. It is time to reshape the economy for a just and empowered society.
We support initiatives that aim to remove both limitations on access to capital and barriers to socio-economic mobility.
- We helped to launch the Greyston Center for Open HiringTM in the US.
- We are working with the Social Mobility Foundation to activate a coalition of employers, communities, charities, councils, schools, colleges and universities to improve social mobility for talented young people. Read more on the Department for Opportunities website.
About the strategy
Economic inequality is a defining issue of our time. It is threatening health, well-being, institutions and our response to existential threats like climate change. Actions to reshape the economy are necessary for social justice, stability and collective action.
We will work to counteract the systemic drivers of inequality and mobilise businesses and investors to use their influence to create a more equitable society. We will also deploy targeted direct support for programmes that alleviate the effects of an inequitable economic system.
