Social Mobility

Social mobility refers to the shift in an individual’s social status from one status to another. The shift can either be higher, lower, inter-generational or intra-generational. From our perspective, we strive to be a place where we value difference and everyone has an equal opportunity to progress in ALG regardless of their personal background, social identity and socio-economic circumstances.

We currently do this in a number of ways:
