All individuals should be given an equal the opportunity to thrive and treated with even-handed respect and fairness.
Unbiased Equivalence of Opportunity
The circumstances of an individual's birth — including race, culture, economic status and gender, should never bias how that person is treated.
Personal choices, such as gender orientation or religion, should never bias that individuals opportunities in areas that those choices are not relevant to — such as their choices of employment or civic participation.
Life circumstances that may be out of an individual's control — such as physical or mental health or financial position — should not impact that individual's opportunities in areas that those circumstances are not relevant to.
Honoring Diversity Individual Responsibility
Individuals have differences of ability and different areas of interest. As long as they do not cause harm, these differences should never be suppressed. These differences may lead to choices and actions that will effect an individual's opportunities.
Others should not be held responsible for the results of an individual's actions on that individual's opportunities.
