Definition of equity: Fairness or justice in the way people are treated. Below I've placed a cartoon that quickly shows the basic difference between equality and equity.
With this anonymous survey I'm aiming to scout out and subsequently share solutions to some everyday problems we all face. In trying to create more equitable environments in the new music and academic worlds, what do we wish we or others had done differently? What do we lack that we need?
Sharing this information with each other can help us to constantly push towards equity. To me, saving face cannot be the goal. Equity is the goal.
