SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities

Reduce inequality within and among countries.

Too much of the world’s wealth is held by a very small group of people. This often leads to financial and social discrimination. In order for nations to flourish, equality and prosperity must be available to everyone – regardless of gender, race, religious beliefs or economic status. Goal 10 is all about addressing income inequality, social, economic and political inclusion and creating policies that promote equality.

Addressing racism in Ontario’s cultural arts curricula

Pictured here: Collette Murray

Research by Collette Murray, a PhD student in dance studies at the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design at York University, determined that despite Ontario’s mandate to implement culturally responsive pedagogy, Black cultural arts educators face significant challenges when they implement culturally responsive teaching in Greater Toronto Area schools. The cultural arts play a critical role in shaping identities and offering intergenerational values, specifically to Black and diverse students. However, cultural arts educators often face Anti-Black racism, institutional unpreparedness, cultural appropriation and delegitimization of Black Canadian cultural artistry from school administrations.
