SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities
Reducing inequalities found within the community.
Empowering and promoting the social, economic and political inclusion of all, regardless of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status is at the heart of sustainable work. Everyone deserves a chance to fully be their authentic selves in the places they live and work. This will foster happier and healthier lives.
