Our Social Enterprise of the Week:
Generation Success are an award-winning social enterprise that empowers people to reach their career goals.
Their Vision / Mission:
Generation Success are on a mission to create equal access and opportunities for all, throughout the world of work. They help graduates and people looking for work by partnering them with career opportunities that not only meet their aspirations but also support their personal growth and development. Their services include mentoring, career development initiatives, and career advice and support, all designed to encourage diversity and equality.
Generation Success aim to break down any barriers that are standing in the way of people achieving their ambitions. They do this by connecting people of diversity with business opportunities and by helping businesses activate change and promote equality throughout their organisations.
Why We Chose Them:
The current Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in many people losing their jobs and struggling more than they would have been under normal circumstances. This makes the resources Generation Success are offering even more important at the moment. They have moved a lot of their services online and are currently running online events and Q&A videos on their social media channels, offering support and advice on different career options.

That’s why our social mission is to offer job opportunities to people who may be facing barriers when it comes to finding work. We believe that everyone deserves fair chances in life regardless of neurodiversity, background, or past mistakes and this is obviously something Generation Success agree with too.
