In a society, everything is interconnected. From education to the criminal justice system, to politics and the economy, what happens in one aspect of society can impact what happens in another. Living and participating in a society enables us all to move forward as a group and find ways to progress to benefit all members. As demographic change, increased access to higher education, and heightened standards of living push our society forward, it is important to look at who benefits the most from this progress, and where we need to improve in order to make our society more equal.
