Perspectives: Social Mobility
By Verity Barton & Ross Melton
As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, we are navigating an increasingly polarised world, evaluating our priorities, and seeking solutions to old and emerging challenges. To help guide businesses and individuals on this journey, Instinctif Partners is launching its new “Perspectives” series, bringing together two (mostly) contrasting viewpoints to some of the thorny topics of the day.
Our aim is not to tell you what you should think or how you should feel about an issue, but to help you navigate these divides by identifying not only the differences but also the common ground between these “opposing” perspectives.
Ross and Verity work in our Public Policy team to help clients build relationships, reputation and influence in the political and public policy arena. They use politics to drive business success, navigate complex political environments and provide real and tangible solutions to Government. Both in their mid-30s, they have different life experiences, different backgrounds and different politics, but they are passionate about debate and understanding different points of view. For them, the new Perspectives series is about broadening their own understanding, even if they don’t change their minds.
As a business, Instinctif Partners is passionate about social mobility and helping everyone realise their full potential. For the first issue of Perspectives, we wanted to take a look across the political divide to understand how those on the right and left view social mobility.
But this isn’t just about what we think – we want you to engage in the conversation. Which perspective do you think most aligns with yours? Do you think there really a right- left social mobility divide? Let us know on social media or get in touch via email – we’d love to hear from you.
