SDG 10 - Reduced inequalities
Inequalities based on income, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, race, class, ethnicity, religion and opportunity continue to persist across the world. This dangerously threatens long-term social and economic development and harms opportunities to reduce poverty for all people.
LJMU strives to enable equality for all people regardless of income, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, race, class, ethnicity, religion. Our international and collaborative research aims to give a voice to minoritised and vulnerable communities and end poor treatment of human beings. Our research extends to improving the treatment of women in African prisons and identifying disaster victims through our Face Lab.
LJMU holds the NAVAJO Chartermark, signifying commitment and knowledge of the needs, issues and barriers facing LGBTIQA+ people in Merseyside.
