DEI creates an environment where people from various backgrounds are able to share different ideas, skills, and insights. This environment ensures that every team member feels involved and supported. It is not simply an environment where diverse individuals are present, but rather where diverse individuals are involved, empowered, and developed. A foci of this is equity and equality. Equity and equality are terms that are often used interchangeably. Although similar, equity and equality carry different meanings, especially in the context of social systems. This week I explore this difference and ask for your thoughts and what is equity and what is equality.
