Did you know that 69% of students feel that they need to make changes to who they are to make a good impression during face to face interviews? And that 36% of candidates would be put off applying for a job at a company made up of mostly middle- to upper-class employees?
These are just a few insights from Debut’s latest research, which dives into the structural imbalance at higher education level and explores why traditional tactics for early talent attraction perpetuate the lack of diversity.
This event provides hands-on workshops on accessibility and will provide you with actionable steps to take back to your organisation. A member of the Debut team will lead the conversation at each table and discuss the latest social mobility initiatives and ideas, using case studies from leading graduate employers.

I had a fantastic day yesterday, absolutely buzzing telling the team here all about it this morning! I’m sad that I can’t come to the next couple of events as I’m on holiday, but I will 100% book onto another one again!Julia HaleyKerry Foods

Congratulations on yet another super well organised event. Great to see how the number of participants increases with each event and the topic is in trend.Georgiana ChiperIBM
Lively, vibrant and eclectic, Covent Garden is in the heart of the West End, surrounded by theatres, galleries, shops and landmarks. Once the Westminster County Court building and now elegantly converted into a bar and restaurant, Browns is close to all the main theatres and our pre- and post-theatre suppers are extremely popular. The once Courtroom has now become the house to our events.
