Dear Hannah: LEarning (Shuttleworth Foundation Application Narrative (The Equalizer 2018))

March 04, 2019

Dear Hannah,

Our world is still dominated by forces that equate “equality” to “providing opportunities”.

These forces often provide opportunities that they control.

To the contrary, equality is predicated on both opportunity and circumstance.

Equality is achieved when societies provide opportunities and circumstances that create diverse, inclusive, and sensitive environments.

Those favored most by the status quo are not likely to help change it.

The opportunities and circumstances that create diverse, inclusive, and sensitive environments must be procured and created by the people who desire them most.

This requires the development of leaders with "equalizer" mindsets – those capable of being neutralizing authorities who balance power where deficits exist.

Power is work done efficiently (with wise and skillful use of resources, interests, communication, and expertise).

“Equalizers” who generate power and multiply themselves can create change.

I am an “equalizer”.



Love,

Daddy
