Equality and Equity are NOT the same

Equality vs. Equity Bikes

This image from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation describes the difference between equality and equity. With equality, all people are given the same bicycle regardless of their different needs. With equity, each person is given the bicycle that meets their specific needs. Simply speaking, equality means sameness, and equity means fairness and justice.
