Catalyst 300 – Poverty & Inequality

In many countries, women, people of color, LGBTQ+, religious minorities, low-income, indigenous people, and people with disabilities lack access to and power over resources while facing disproportionate risks. They are more likely to be victims of violence and prosecution, face environmental risks and social exclusion, lack access to healthcare and education, not receive equal pay, and have a limited ability to participate in decision making. The goal of this challenge is to address the root causes and consequences of inequality in communities worldwide.
