SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities

From diversity initiatives in the corporate world to new public and social policies around migration, attention to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 10, Reduced Inequalities, seems to be at an all-time high. Nonetheless, it remains a goal out of easy reach: the COVID-19 pandemic has indeed exacerbated global inequalities, disproportionately impacting less-developed countries and communities of color, deepening gender inequalities, and increasing global unemployment. Even as we publish peer-reviewed, cutting-edge research that approaches these issues from academic and policy points of view, we also work internally to attain a more equal workplace through our Diversity & Inclusion initiatives and employee networks; externally, we participate in projects to help achieve a more equal research landscape, such as our founding membership in Research4Life, collective programme that provides developing countries with free or low-cost access to academic and professional peer-reviewed content online. Aiming to build bridges between research and practice to better achieve SDG 10, Springer Nature has here collected a selection of our publishing related to reducing inequalities.

Diversity and inclusion at Springer Nature

At Springer Nature, diversity and inclusion is at the core of how we work and who we are. Working towards a more inclusive and diverse workplace creates opportunities and allows our people to perform at their best. Our employee-networks focus on fostering dialogue around diversity, community building, advice and advocacy. They unite people who share an identity – like being a member of the LGBTQ+ community, a person with a disability or a parent – with those who support them and who want to learn more about their perspectives and experiences.
