Build Equity through a Targeted Approach

Build Equity through a Targeted Approach

In an equitable community, everyone enjoys the full benefits of society. Building an equitable society requires an understanding of racial, social, spatial, economic, and environmental systems as well as biases and how they manifest within a community.

Inequities can exist in the areas of economics, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, national origin, and religion, resulting in social problems that require innovative solutions.

It is essential to possess the relevant knowledge and skills to first identify systemic forces, power differentials, and implicit biases then develop innovative, equitable, and sustainable solutions for those complex social problems.

Drawing on information from activists working toward equitable communities can provide insights into community building, support development, and economic opportunity creation. Additionally, analyzing the stories of a place by examining who tells them and how they advance group interests facilitate the understanding of narrative impact.

You will identify inequity issues that require mitigation, reversal, or consolidation by using different perspectives. Participating in relevant discussions with peers and keeping a course journal will advance your knowledge and allow you to gain an in-depth understanding of inequity issues that affect society at large.
