If veterinarians are going to remain credible and productive, if we are to maintain our influence and protect our income, we need to continue to evolve and heighten our commitment to diversity and inclusion. We need to be visionary. We need to embrace all of those around us.
It sounds great – and simple enough, too. But doing so isn’t always easy. That’s why the AVMA has created a Diversity and Inclusion area on our website. We hope you find the books, journal articles, videos, personal accounts and links to other organizations useful as you learn how and why diversity and inclusion efforts can make your work place a more vital, resilient and thriving environment. And, if you’re an AVMA or SAVMA member and want to connect with colleagues in an ongoing, online conversation on diversity and inclusion issues, initiatives and ideas, we invite you to join our Access and Opportunity in Veterinary Medicine LinkedIn group.
