Maddie's Candid Conversations


In-depth discussions about equity, inclusion & diversity

NEW! Candid Conversations are now available in audio format


Join us for illuminating conversations with influential animal welfare leaders, hosted by our own Mary Ippoliti-Smith. You will be inspired by each speaker’s pathway to promoting equity, inclusion and diversity in their daily work. When we respect and appreciate the journeys our community members have taken, we are reminded of the importance of keeping pets and people together. Nine discussions are currently available to watch or listen to (wherever you get your podcasts).
