Equality and equity

I have three kids.

I love them equally.

But I don’t treat them the same because they are not the same. Each has a different personality, different aspirations, different struggles. In some respect, it would be unfair to treat them equally.

In the workplace, this translates to equity. Equity asks us to see each employee as an individual human being. In doing so, it aims for fairness over sameness.

Because no one is the same, except in that we all want to be treated fairly.
