On Thursday 23rd January, 1COR’s Head of Outreach Jo Moore participated in a panel to discuss ‘overcoming barriers: succeeding in the world while staying true to yourself’ at the Sutton Trust Alumni Event in London. Jo joined leading lights Gina Martin, Tahmid Chowdhury and Rachel Carvell-Spedding to discuss their journeys overcoming obstacles and their experiences of making a difference. This was followed by an opportunity for the alumni to catch up and meet others from similar backgrounds.
1COR has long supported the work of the Sutton Trust in encouraging social mobility and access to the profession, and was delighted to meet former students who had benefited from a variety of programmes.
Thank you to the Alumni Leadership Board members Gemma, Michelle and Tasha for organising an interesting and engaging night with plenty of great sharing of stories and experiences!
