Mishcon de Reya Real Estate Associate Claudine Adeyemi was highly commended in the 'rising star' category at last night's UK Social Mobility Awards 2017 ceremony.
The UK Social Mobility Awards 'recognise and celebrate the achievements of businesses and organisations across the country in their work of advancing social mobility'.
The Rising Star award recognises those aged 30 or under who have already made a significant contribution to advancing the cause of social mobility. In addition to her main job role, Claudine is passionate about diversity, particularly ethnicity and social mobility issues affecting young people. She sits on Mishcon de Reya's Diversity Committee, previously leading the sub group for ethnicity and social mobility, and founded and runs The Student Development Co. C.I.C., a non-profit organisation which provides career related support to 16 to 24 year olds from less privileged backgrounds, in her spare time. It has already helped over 200 16-24 year olds make more informed decisions about their futures, working with various companies. Claudine also launched a mobile app, Career Ear, which aims to improve accessibility to quality careers advice for young career-seekers from less privileged backgrounds.
