A message from Burberry:

“We all face many challenges as we look to pave the way to a fulfilling career, however a young person’s potential should not be dictated by their postcode, social or economic background or who they know… The Burberry Foundation firmly believes in giving all young people a voice and challenging the lack of understanding and more than imperfect access to the creative industries.

We are well into the initial stages of the fourth Industrial Revolution, as robotics and Artificial Intelligence offer almost endless opportunities, not inevitabilities, to shape our society in a more fair and equitable way. It is vital that we develop a talented, diverse, empowered, enabled workforce to steer this revolution.”

– Richard Mason, Senior Manager, Responsibility at Burberry
