Abstract

A new report by the Social Mobility and Child Povery Commission finds that elitism is deeply embedded in Britain. Lindsey Macmillan looks at the report and discusses her own research which explores the role of networks in perpetuating elitism and how we can help in widening access to elite professions. Unfortunately, a common problem in this field is a lack of data quality and availability.
