Social Mobility, Inequality and Making it in Modern Britain with Hashi Mohamed

We live in a society where the single greatest indicator of what your job will be, is the job of your parents. As a barrister raised on benefits who attended some of the worst schools in the country, Hashi Mohamed knows a thing or two about social mobility. At Words Weekend he shares what he has learned. From the stark statistics that reveal the depth of the problem to the failures of imagination, education and confidence that compound it. Wherever you are on the social spectrum, this event will teach us that we have more power than we realise to make changes.

Bio: Hashi Mohamed arrived in Britain at the age of nine as a child refugee, and is now a barrister at No5 Chambers in London. He is also a broadcaster, having appeared on BBC Radio 4, and presented Adventures in Social Mobility (April 2017) and Macpherson: What Happened Next (2019). He is also a contributor to the Guardian, The Times and Prospect.
