Diversity Doesn't Equal Equity

High diversity stats do not equate to high levels of equity in a school or organization. Recruiting diversity is not eradicating oppression. Promoting inclusivity is not combating injustice. Schools and organizations should not focus on recruiting diverse students, teachers, leaders, and staff if they have upheld the dominant culture and sustained an oppressive environment. We must only do diversity and inclusivity work once we have done deep and honest equity (read: anti-oppression) work. The order isn't Diversity, Inclusivity, Equity; instead it is always equity first! #equityliteracy *See this post and more on LinkedIn
