What is meeting equity?

Meeting equity or meeting equality is a way to make sure that every hybrid meeting participant can equally be heard and seen. Meeting equity ensures that remote employees receive the same level of engagement, collaboration and access to a meeting room experience as those who are physically seated around the table. 

Meeting equity depends on: 

  • Your physical presence in the meeting room
  • Access to meeting technology  
  • How well meeting participants are heard and seen
  • The availability of features, such as polling, chat, note taking, blackboarding, annotation

Why is meeting equity important? 

Over the past two years, workers have become accustomed to hybrid technology and flexibility. People’s mindsets about what the workplace should look like has changed. Today, we expect easy to use, high-quality voice and video experiences that allow us to see and hear each other clearly, and that enable us to be more productive and included wherever we are located.

It will be the task of business leaders to enable such experiences, and to build an environment where employees can feel included and empowered to do their best work on their own terms, whether it’s in the office or at a remote location. A company that promotes meeting equity is a company with happier employees. An open company culture that promotes inclusion is also an important way to attract and retain talent.
