Queen Mary has been shortlisted in the University of the Year category in the UK Social Mobility Awards 2022.
It was announced on Monday that Queen Mary is a finalist in the University of the Year category in the sixth annual UK Social Mobility Awards (SOMOs).
The UK Social Mobility Awards recognise and celebrate UK organisations in their efforts to improve social mobility, both within their workforce and beyond it. Organised by societal change charity, Making The Leap, the SOMOs were the first national awards dedicated to social mobility, which aims to raise awareness of social mobility by sharing the innovative work of forward-thinking organisations working to improve it.
This year’s shortlist includes organisations and individuals from a variety of industries who have demonstrated their commitment to advancing social mobility and the efficacy of the initiatives they have created.
The winners of this year’s event will be determined by an independent judging panel, made up of leading figures from business, charity, and the public sector. The judging panel is chaired by the HM Lord Lieutenant of London, Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE. Winners will be announced at an in-person awards gala on Thursday 13 October 2022.
