Gender equity: Men and women have comparable opportunities to access
desired or required resources.

People with disabilities are able to access resources that create
opportunities for them to reach their full potential and meet their needs.

People of all ethnic backgrounds are afforded the opportunity to achieve
their full potential.

All of the above also imply that institutions have examined themselves in
order to actively remove existing obstacles and dangers to equal access.
