Equity, in the workplace, is the promotion of fair and just policies and practices for each person in the organization regardless of gender, race sex, age, or other factors. Equitable policies include access to technology needed to complete a role successfully to being granted opportunities for career advancement. Unlike equality, equitable work policies are not about treating all individuals equally, but acknowledging that everyone comes from different experiences and may need different accommodations for their success. Equity issues often involve pay wage gaps, unfair treatment at work and a lack of opportunities for certain groups of people.
One way to promote equity within your organization is to prioritize representation and wage equity.
