Gender Equity


When gender and gender identity no longer determine one’s life outcomes. In terms of the workplace, that means recruitment, hiring, retention, advancement, salary, overall wellbeing, and more; when everyone has what they need to thrive professionally and are free of gender-based harassment, bias, and discrimination. As a process, we apply gender equity when those most impacted by structural gender inequities (e.g., women, transgender and gender-diverse individuals, and the intersection of marginalized identities), are meaningfully involved in the creation and implementation of the institutional policies and practices that impact their lives.
