EQUITY is, by Rajas Karnik

"Equity is promotion of justice by ensuring the fair treatment, equal opportunity, and advancement for all people. It is the recognition, the engagement, and the endeavour to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of people with under-represented and marginalized identities and thus help them grow, develop, and contribute to society."
