Perceiving Social Inequity
Social inequity is a persistent characteristic of many contemporary work environments. The historically prevailing perspective frames social inequity in organizations as emerging from discrimination: systematic biases that hinder the advancement of subordinate group members. A less frequently considered perspective is that social inequity in organizations emerges from the systematic gains and privilege that members of dominant groups experience. Given the critical impact that privilege recognition can have on the motivation to rectify inequitable differences, in this research, we explore the circumstances that enhance the likelihood of dominant group members viewing inequity as privilege.
