The term “equity” refers to fairness and justice and is distinguished from equality: Whereas equality means providing the same to all, equity means recognizing that we do not all start from the same place and must acknowledge and make adjustments to imbalances. The process is ongoing, requiring us to identify and overcome intentional and unintentional barriers arising from bias or systemic structures.
This new study from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) explores employers’ commitments to and understanding of the issue of equity in recruiting (EiR). Funded through the generosity of organizations that sponsored NACE’s 2021 HBCU Summit and conducted in partnership with the Center for the Study of Historically Black Colleges & Universities (the Center), the study focuses on what employers are doing to recruit and retain diverse interns.
