Gartner ThinkCast

Feb 8, 2022

Here at Gartner, we define equity as the “fair treatment and equality of access to opportunity, information and resources, built through identification and elimination of unfair biases, stereotypes or barriers that may inadvertently exclude underrepresented employees.” It’s a concept that’s rapidly gaining momentum with organizations as they look to advance representation and improve business outcomes.

In the second episode of a three-part series around diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), guest host Rob O’Donohue, a Senior Director, Analyst in Gartner's CIO Research Group, sits down with Emily Strother, a Senior Researcher here at Gartner, where she works with the HR practice on employee experience, the employee value proposition, and DEI. Tune in to their discussion about the key differences between equity and equality, the benefits of working in an equitable organization, and how hybrid work is changing the conversation.
