Continuing the Conversation on Equity and Inclusion: Will Meritocracy Get Us There? BCTF Fall Zone Meeting October 1213, 2018 Meritocracy?

www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEI65-j88L8 2 Meritocracy* Meritocracy describes a system in which everyone has an equal chance of succeeding. In a meritocratic society, success depends entirely on how hard you work. Factors such as class, gender, sexual orientation, or race do not influence your chance at

succeeding. To put it simply, the harder you work, the more successful you will become. *Source: Sixty Second Sociology: Meritocracy. YouTube. August 30, 2016.

your local? 4 Privilege is a special right or advantage available only to a particular

person or group. 5 Unconscious bias Our minds evolved the ability to process and act on information unconsciously as a survival mechanism.

We respond positively to people we see to be like us and negatively to those who we perceive as different. This unconscious judgement of people may affect whom we select in leadership roles. 6
