Chapter VIII: Veterinary Inclusion & Intersectionality Initiative Presentation Slides from the 11/14/22 Community Conversations Call 

11-15-2022 01:24 PM

Chapter VIII: Veterinary Inclusion and Intersectionality Initiative was founded in 2020 to empower underrepresented groups within veterinary medicine by way of advocacy, accessibility, and art. The organization aims to reach people who belong to multiple underrepresented or marginalized groups based on race, ethnicity, disability, class, gender, and sexuality. Identifying and understanding intersectionality of underrepresentation is integral to addressing systemic racism and understanding privilege within our profession and beyond. Knowledge on the spectrum of privilege affects our ability to provide access to the spectrum of care. To highlight these values, we seek to enhance equitable education and clinical care opportunities for underrepresented communities within and outside of the veterinary profession.
