RBPEA: a quick note on inequalities

This is a quick practical follow-on to the previous post ‘RBPEA: On equality and gender‘. In the ‘Practical applications’ section at the end, where we shift down from the big-picture and refocus on everyday enterprise-architecture, I asserted that “inequalities are
