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.

The York University Indigenous Research Seed Fund is providing $1 million over three years to emerging and established Indigenous scholars to advance research excellence in Indigenous knowledge, languages and ways of knowing and being. The fund builds on the University’s ongoing commitment to support emerging and established Indigenous scholars, their knowledge creation and the Indigenous communities they work with, under its broader commitment to advance decolonization, equity, diversity and inclusion for underrepresented groups.
