Collision on Sustainable Development Goal #10: Reduced Inequalities

Reduce inequality within and among countries

COVID-19 is an unprecedented global crisis and will require an unprecedented response. In response, many private funders have issued special calls for research, education and community engagement projects to help our country, state and university respond and recover from this emergency. The faculty at the University of Minnesota are well positioned to receive this funding, a critical step in our own recovery and long-term resilience. However, these calls are unusual and often issued on short timelines.

To help faculty navigate and pursue this changing landscape of funding, the UMN SDG Initiative and the University of Minnesota's Corporate and Foundation Relations office are hosting a Zoom Collision Incubator Event on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 from 12-1:00 pm CT.

During the event, we will focus on work at the University of Minnesota convened around the Sustainable Development Goal #10: Reduced Inequalities.

Presentation Recording

Inequality within and among nations continues to be a significant concern despite progress in and efforts at narrowing disparities of opportunity, income and power. Income inequality continues to rise in many parts of the world, even as the bottom 40 per cent of the population in many countries has experienced positive growth rates. Greater emphasis will need to be placed on reducing inequalities in income as well as those based on other factors.
