Knowledge equity is a concept which can mean different things to different people. This research project addresses fair access to knowledge in organizational settings and develops a comprehensive view of knowledge equity within organizational units. The aim of the project is to explore attitudes toward knowledge equity, examine the cultural affects of cognitive schemas on knowledge equity, and determine the role knowledge equity plays in organizational operations. The high level view this study takes is critical to understanding why knowledge equity would be viewed as important to some organizational members while not necessarily to other members. The project emphasizes a structured approach for examining knowledge equity aiming to provide significant theoretical contributions regarding the role of knowledge equity in organizations. Specifically, the goal of the study is to establish a theoretical foundation on knowledge equity and determine the role of knowledge equity plays in organizations.
