What we mean: Equality

Equality in organizations means:

  1. economic justice, making sure that all organizational members are compensated fairly and benefit from the organizations’ profits;
  2. political equality, making sure all members participate in making decisions about the organization;
  3. social fairness, making sure members of diverse social groups have access to opportunities and benefits; and
  4. social responsibility, making sure that the organization contributes positively and does no harm to the community and the environment.

Our definition of equality is informed by research on diversity and inclusion, workplace democracy and social responsibility. While we have not yet seen an organization or community that meets all these criteria, we work with organizations that want to learn and move towards this vision.
