Equality Indicators

CUNY ISLG’s Equality Indicators team developed a framework for measuring equality in Economy,
Education, Health, Housing, Justice, and Services. Equality, as we define it, is everyone having the same
outcomes regardless of disability, sexual orientation, gender, age, race, ethnicity, immigration status,
place of residence, and other characteristics.

Our framework is based on a data‐driven approach to measuring equality.
But we know data cannot tell the whole story.
That is why we are inviting you to share a photo that captures what equality looks like to you.

2nd Prize – An Equality Indicators T‐Shirt or tote bag

All winning photos will be posted on the Equality Indicators website.

Judging Criteria
Photos will be judged on how well they capture population groups and/or themes that are included in
the Equality Indicators study. Winning pictures should be thought‐ and/or emotion‐provoking.

The Population Groups
12 groups who are likely to experience inequality in NYC:
• Children under 18
• Immigrants
