What is equality? Equality is dividing resources and giving all the same thing, but it does not factor in need, ability, or difference. Everyone is seen as the same. What is equity? Equity is the belief that you factor in the difference and make adjustments to account for this difference. (Source: achievebrowncounty.org)
Equity and equality are often interchanged to mean that people are given fair opportunities. That everyone has the same opportunity, same advantages; that we all start at the same starting line.
Equality and equity are just parts of the move to create opportunities for everyone. When we look at all having equal rights, equal opportunities, equal advantages, we cannot forget the early inequalities in the systems of the world and the justices. For equity and equality to exist, justice has to be part of the equation. We all have the right to exist equally, equitably, and justly in this world.
