Equality says, “Everyone is treated the same here”. Equity challenges and acts, “What policies, systems, and practices must be addressed or dismantled for everyone to be treated fairly?”
Aspiring to become an organization that values merit as a principle and in practice is noble, however, its impact can be detrimental to progress. The assumption that everyone is treated the same based on their skills (equality) can hamper the organization’s and leadership’s capacity to be critical of the systems, policies, and practices that need a change for everyone to experience a fair and inclusive work culture (equity).
Equity is truly the capstone of the journey through diversity, inclusion, and equality, and the best part about achieving equity is the unique and intangible sense of community and engagement it creates.
