Addressing Inequality: Online course on systems thinking

Rising inequalities are among the most complex and pressing issues of our century. Inequalitiesare multilayered, come in different shapes and can reinforce one another. Covid-19 has revealed and compounded existing inequalities in wealth, race, gender, age and education across societies and economies by hitting those most vulnerable the hardest.

A holistic perspective is needed to understand and to embrace different dimensions and root causes of inequalities as well as their intersections with other global challenges.

“Addressing inequalities” is a five-week online introduction course, which looks at the topic from a systemic perspective.

It offers an overview on key concepts and approaches behind systemic practices, provides opportunities to explore and experiment with methods and tools to understand complex inequality challenges as well as to reflect about key actions that might shape change for the better. 

The course targets a wide range of professionals, working on the issue of inequality who would like to apply these approaches and tools in their work in order to co-create a just future where no one is left behind.

Facilitated by Laura Winn & Zoya Lukyanova.
