We define equity, inclusion, and compassionate leadership as:  

Equity: Fair and just treatment of all through the creation of opportunities to address privilege and power imbalances.

Compassionate Leadership: The capacity to be open to the reality of another’s experiences, to celebrate their joy, and to work toward the healing of their suffering.
