Q. What is gender equity?

A. In an educational environment, gender equity means equal involvement and learning opportunities for women and men, both of whom may participate, learn and prepare for future education, jobs and careers with no gender-based expectations. Equal encouragement for all in this context is essential equitable treatment as required by law. Gender equity principles and equal opportunity also apply in the workplace and other arenas in society.
