Global Future Council on the New Agenda for Equity and Social Justice
What are the new paths to tackle systemic racism and gender inequality and create economic equity and social justice for all disadvantaged groups in the new economy? The COVID-19 crisis has exposed and worsened existing inequalities in societies around the world. It has revealed the failure of institutions to provide equity and justice. Racial minorities, women and disadvantaged groups – in terms of sexual orientation, nationality, disability and age – are disproportionately affected by the immediate and medium-term effects of the crisis. This is leading to mass societal upheaval. Key themes to address include innovative approaches to systemic change in governments, businesses and society at large to leverage the current societal mobilization to hardwire equity and social justice into post-pandemic economy and society. The Global Future Council on the New Agenda for Equity and Social Justice will develop new thinking and influence change and action through the Forum’s Platform for Shaping the New Economy and Society and shape key inputs to the Great Reset initiative.
