Reducing Inequalities Globally: Today’s Growing Feelings of Divide

How do we reduce inequalities within and among countries with today’s growing feelings of divide? Join us in November to learn more about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 10: Reduce Inequalities within and among countries. Learn insights into the roles that individuals, education and training institutions, stakeholders and regulating governments may play in achieving the specified targets by 2030. 


Speakers

Yvonne Nchanji

Yvonne Kiki Nchanji is a Doctoral Researcher in the Environmental Policy discipline, Department of Geographical and Historical Studies at the University of Eastern Finland. She is a forestry, livelihoods, and gender professional. Yvonne has worked with different international research institutions to improve the understanding of gender differentials in knowledge, skills, management practices, and access to resources, decision making, and benefits, concerning forest resources in the Congo Basin.

Her research interests are in forest policy and governance, forest-based livelihoods, forest-poverty-food security links, sustainability, gender and social inclusion in forest management, and other institutional development interests. Her current work revolves around the social dimensions of gender livelihood strategies in natural resource management in national parks in Cameroon.

Karen Navamani

Karen Navamani has a background of working towards fostering disability and inclusion in mainstream institutions in the line of organizational development, and has a history of working in the non-profit organization management industry across Research, and Learning, Training & Development for persons with disabilities.

Her expertise is mostly in the “disability” and “mental health” fields, where she aims to comprehensively address how some people perform in interpersonal, social, and organizational environments at the workplace. She uses inclusive techniques and psychology to encourage constructive organizational behaviour, particularly in settings where inequality and stereotypes are prevalent. She is persuaded that empowering people with disabilities in their vocational development will work as a catalyst to turn opportunities into action in modern organizations.

Karen is currently pursuing her Masters degree in Occupational Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire, United Kingdom. Her drive is stirred up towards raising resources, pioneering new developmental models on tackling issues of inclusion in organizations.
