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.

YORK INTRODUCES NEW COUNCIL TO DELIVER ON COMMITMENT TO EQUITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

Pictured here: Sheila Cote-Meek

York is building a learning environment where our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is a part of everything we do. To that end, we founded the President’s Advisory Council on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in November 2020, chaired
by Sheila Cote-Meek, vice-president Equity, People and Culture. It’s also why Professor Susan D. Dion was appointed as the first associate vice-president of Indigenous initiatives. There is still much more work to do, and we are rising to the challenge as a university community where all voices are valued and respected. Learn more here.
