5 Reasons Why
The United States has wider disparities of wealth between rich and poor than any other major developed nation. This gap is only getting wider.
2. The rich get richer
- In the U.S. the top 10% own nearly 80% of the country’s wealth, while the bottom 60% own just 2.4%
- The gap between average worker pay and CEO pay is almost six times larger than it was in 1980
- The racial wealth divide is not getting better, it’s getting worse
- Men continue to hold the majority of the wealth, while women and transgender inidividuls are more likely to experience poverty, lower wages, and debt
3. Inequality affects us all
People live longer in more equal nations, including the rich. Researchers think this is to do with more equal societies having greater social cohesion, which has a big impact on health and well-being.
4. People expect more from leadership
80% of U.S. employees believe it is the responsibility of company leaders to take action in addressing racial justice and equity issues.
5. It’s really about what’s right
“Equity is the only acceptable goal.” — Dr. Paul Farmer, Anthropologist, Physician and Professor
"Complex issues are really brought down to a level that any individual can relate to. That shows the thoughtfulness that [Inclusivv] put into creating these experiences.”
"Our goal was always to make a difference... and so, seeing the 90% statistic around people wanting to take action and do something following the event, it was impressive and truly made us feel like we were doing something."
"[Inclusivv] enabled us to reach and engage with sectors of the regional community we had little or no previous relationships with."
