COVID-19 is reshaping our world and affecting people’s well-being in many ways. The crisis is also drawing attention on the socio-economic divides fracturing our societies, and deepening these divides by hitting the most vulnerable hardest. Shedding light on the relationship between COVID-19 and inequality will be critical to help countries ensure that people’s well-being remain at the hearth of their recovery strategies.
To better understand this relationship, the OECD Centre on Well-being, Inclusion, Sustainability and Equal Opportunity (WISE), in collaboration with the Employment, Labour and Social Affairs Directorate, and other OECD Directorates, is organising aseries of webinars that aim to explore the evidence base and carve a comprehensive overview of the Covid-inequality nexus in a number of areas including: income, spatial inequality, ethnicity and migration, labour, gender, child and education, mental health, environment and more. A summary report will be published once the seminar series is completed.
