  1. the ability to recognize even the subtlest biases and inequities,

  2. the ability to respond skillfully and equitably to biases and inequities in the immediate term,

  3. the ability to redress biases and inequities by understanding and addressing them at their institutional roots, 

  4. the ability to actively cultivate equity by applying an equity commitment to every decision, and

  5. the ability to sustain equity efforts even in the face of discomfort or resistance.
