Inequality in South Africa: Optimism in the Era of Technology | #EGresponsible

When talking about sustainability, particularly inequity, there are many reasons to be pessimistic. The 2022 World Inequality Report by the World Inequality Lab reports that the richest 10% have more than half of all income and 76% of the wealth. The poorest half only have 8.5% of all income and 2% of the wealth. But we spoke with Africa-based Sharmi Surianarain, Chief Impact Officer of Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator, on inequality in South Africa because she is not only optimistic but adamant that pessimism is a sign of privilege.

In our latest edition of the EG Responsible video series, Principal Analyst Rita Soni, speaks with Sharmi on inequality in South Africa and how we can be optimists, especially in the era of technology.
