    Catherine Kisavi-Atatah Ph.D. shares the findings of her publication, Examining the Relationship between BIPOC Communities and Their Companion Animals. This study explored the relationship between BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities with their companion animals, using Attachment Theory as a lens of analysis. Findings suggest that public and private policy decision-makers should develop and implement holistic, across-the-board, companion animal policies that are user-friendly to all.

    This webcast was recorded on Thursday, October 12, 2023 

    Watch the recording on Maddie's University

    Learning Objectives:

    •         Understand the complexities of the multifaceted aspects of the relationship between Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities and their companion animals, including historical, cultural and socio-economic factors
    •       Identify the unique challenges and barriers that BIPOC communities encounter in accessing veterinary care, resources and   support for their companion animals, and evaluate the implications for both the animals and communities
    •        Understand the significance of cultural competency and diversity in veterinary medicine and animal welfare; analyze how these   factors influence the provision of care and support to BIPOC individuals and their communities 
    •          Evaluate policy recommendations and practical insights presented in the paper to better support BIPOC communities in their     relationship with companion animals, and consider the broader implications for public policies, animal welfare organizations     and community initiatives

    I am a student of Dr. Atatah's and I absolutely love this research study! I'm not a big fan of pets, but what stood out to me the most is that Dr. Atatah first conducted this research during Covid-19 which lets me know that everything she presented  on this zoom has been extremely examined to the best of its ability & knowledge. Overall, I loved the presentation and I am now considering getting a companion animal.  - Kerys W
