2019 Multimodal and transit Summit, New Haven CT
We were proud to sponsor this summit at the partnership level. The keynote speaker, Charles C. Brown defined equity at the beginning of his talk. We know that this is always a challenge because there are so many definitions put forward. We'd like to share his with you.
Equity involves trying to understand and give people what they want to enjoy full, healthy lives.
Equity is the presence of justice and fairness within the procedures, processes, and distribution of resources by institutions or systems.
Facing equity issues requires an understanding of the underlying or the root causes in inequalities and oppression within society.
