When is Social Equity Realized?

Equity is realized when identity—such as race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation or expression—has no detrimental effect on the distribution of resources, opportunities and outcomes for group members in a society.

What is the difference between Equity and Equality?

Equality focuses on giving everyone the same thing, regardless of outcomes. Equality works when everyone starts from the same place.

Equity is fairness. It's ensuring that people have access to the same opportunities or services we administer or deliver, directly or by contract.
