When people at the bottom of the income ladder have little chance of moving up, and those at the top remain there, the social elevator is broken. The lack of social mobility in our societies has economic, societal and political consequences. This new OECD report – A broken social elevator? How to promote social mobility – shows that there is space for policies to make societies more mobile and protect households from adverse income shocks. It discusses the options and measures that policy makers can consider to improve social mobility across and within generations.
Join the presentation on 15th June at 16:00-16:45 CEST (Paris time) / 10:00-10:45 EDT (Washington DC) to listen to and debate the key findings of the report.
- Stefano Scarpetta, Director, Employment, Labour and Social Affairs, OECD
- Stéphane Carcillo, Head of Jobs and Income Division, OECD
- Michael Förster, Senior Economist, OECD
Duration: 45 minutes (30 minutes presentation, followed by 15 minutes for Q&A)
