NOCCA Equity Definition:
Equity is fairness in action for all:
Equity is valuing diversity and fairness through actions, systems, and policies. Equity is more than intention. It seeks to undo systemic injustices.
Equity means that everyone is offered what they individually need in order to succeed. Equity does not mean everyone receives the same things in the same way.
Equity within NOCCA means that each member of the community feels safe, supported, and respected.
