Conciliation between personal responsability in my issue VS society responsability in people issue

I would love to have your feedback about the question of the responsibility of a person in his/ her life. We are all individually responsible of our own lives. And I agree with the fact that circumstances are neutral, and your thoughts create your emotions, then actions, then results.
However, in a society perspective, we can’t deny neither that social determinism exists, seeing that depending on your background you have 10 times chances less to be successful than someone else. The society has the responsibility to address inequality issues between people, since it aims at equality but contribute to inequality in the same time. At a personal level I still have the responsibility to deal with this inequality issues that impact my life. What do you think about the superposition of responsibility? Do you think the model is effective to address issues in the huge systemic point of view of our current society?
