Mosaic held a fundraising dinner at Thomas Goode & Company for the second year running on 23rd April. The evening was hosted by Thomas Goode owner and Mosaic Ambassador, Rumi Verjee CBE. Rumi also heads up the Rumi Foundation which is a great supporter of our work with disadvantaged young people
The dinner provided a platform for discussions concerning social mobility, the importance of role models and the importance of supporting young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Guest speaker for the night was Ruby McGregor-Smith CBE, Chief Executive of MITIE Group PLC, the strategic outsourcing company. Ruby spoke powerfully about her career in business and the importance of supporting young people.
In an effort to help the evening’s guests better understand Mosaic’s work, two mentors: Maz Majid, a senior member of Marks & Spencer and Saba Shaukat, an independent technology consultant, gave talks about what they actually do as mentors.
Commenting on the event, Mosaic’s National Director Jonathan Freeman said: “We feel a responsibility to not only provide our award-winning mentoring services, but to engage fully with the wider issues that affect our society as a whole. We thank all of our guest speakers, our event hosts and mentors for giving up their time to discuss these important issues with us.
