Book_cover_equityBrevity and Wit, author Minal Bopaiah's strategy and design firm, could also be a good description of the way in which Bopaiah addresses the complicated concepts in her book, Equity: How to Design Organizations Where Everyone Thrives. In six short chapters (along with an introduction and conclusion), Bopaiah both educates readers in equity-related concepts and equips leaders with tools they can use in their organizations' efforts to "design for equity." 

Bopaiah first explains how the concept of "equity" differs from that of "equality," defines each term in IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility), and explores how equity drives inclusion. She then illustrates the three preconditions necessary before an organization can begin to move toward a full expression of equity: 

1) Differences between individuals and groups are valued, not demonized or minimized;

2) People with power can see systems and how they influence opportunities for others; and

3) People with power want to create more opportunity so everyone can thrive with their differences intact.
