Choose any year at random over the past 50 years and you’d be almost certain to find at least one piece of equalities focused legislation enacted in that year. Yet, stark inequalities remain embedded in UK society – inequalities that have been further magnified and exacerbated by COVID-19. This lecture will discuss UCL’s recent project with the Resolution Foundation, Exploring Inequalities: Igniting research to better inform UK policy, and draw on findings from the project’s report, Structurally Unsound. The lecture will outline how we can better approach addressing structural inequalities and highlight key gaps in our collective understanding – both in terms of the evidence base and what works when it comes to policy interventions. We’ll conclude by reflecting on the impacts this project has had and where we hope to go next. Date: Tuesday 6th October Speakers: Siobhan Morris, Coordinator of the Grand Challenge of Justice & Equality, UCL and Dr Olivia Stevenson, Deputy Director, UCL Public Policy Free to attend, live stream or watch online: More info : Join the conversation on Twitter at #UCLMinds #MadeAtUCL
