CAREER AND LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT GRANT TEAM
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is the nation’s premier organization fighting for gender equity. We fight to narrow the pay gap for women, champion equal opportunity for women in education, and work together to support laws and policies that enable women’s success.
Equity vs. Equality
Although these two words have the same root, they don’t mean the same thing. They are often used interchangeably, even though they differ in meaning. Equality means everyone gets the same access to — or amount of — something. Equity, by contrast, is about everyone having equal access to what they need to be successful. And those needs can be quite different.
Equity Network Hawai'i is empowering women to achieve equity for all in Hawai'i. Connect with individuals who will take steps to improve inclusion on our campuses, in our workplaces and in our communities.
