Over the past fifteen years, the OECD has collected a significant body of evidence on the extent and drivers of inequalities, social mobility and equal opportunity, including policy responses on how to tackle these issues. This evidence has shown how reducing inequalities can be highly beneficial for society as a whole. To capitalise on these lessons and address existing information gaps, the OECD is launching an Observatory on Social Mobility and Equal Opportunity. The Observatory will push forward the OECD’s work on these key topics, by collecting new data, discussing new policy options and analysing the role played by the civil society and the private sector. There will be simultaneous interpretation in English and French for this launch event.
OECD World Forums on “Statistics, Knowledge and Policy”
For close to two decades, the OECD World Forums on "Statistics, Knowledge and Policy" have been pushing forward the boundaries of well-being measurement and policy. By bringing together thousands of leaders, experts and practitioners from around the world, and from all sectors of society, the Forums have helped to shape the ongoing paradigm shift to emphasise people’s well-being as the ultimate focus for policies and collective action.
