This page exists as a resource page and platform from which ACVIM membership can learn, grow, and act in support of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The ACVIM recognizes the positive impacts of the Diversity and Inclusion Taskforce- recently approved to become a standing DEI Committee-, including the creation of this page. The foundational work of this dedicated group of members has advanced the ACVIM’s ongoing evolution towards best practices in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
Please note that we will have another call for volunteers for the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee later this year
