Core Values

Partnering for Awareness and Access to Services  Supporting Success

Equity means fairness and justice and focuses on  outcomes that are most appropriate for a given group, recognizing different challenges, needs, and histories.  

It is distinct from diversity, which can simply mean variety (the presence of individuals with various identities). It is also not equality, or “same treatment,” which doesn’t take different needs or disparate outcomes into account.  

Systemic equity involves a robust system and dynamic process consciously designed to create, support, and sustain social justice.
