Social issues are often interlinked and don’t exist in isolation. We’re committed to taking actions which create positive outcomes within abrdn, within our industry and in our communities, for people who face multiple barriers in society.
Our social inclusion action plan reflects best practice recommendations from the Social Mobility Employer Index and the Social Mobility Commission.
Our areas of focus
Improving social mobility outcomes in abrdn
Improving social mobility outcomes across our industry
We also work collaboratively externally with organisations and groups including ShareAction, Living Wage and the City of London Socio Economic Diversity Taskforce, and we signed up to the Workforce Disclosure Initiative for the first time in 2022. These collaborations help us share best practice, encourage cross-industry collaboration, and promote sharing of resources.
Improving social mobility outcomes for our communities
In 2021 58% of the £2.6m charitable donations from the abrdn Charitable Foundation contributed to improving social welfare and education.
