Diversify Veterinary Medicine Coalition
The Diversify Veterinary Medicine Coalition (DVMC) was established in 2020 to support veterinary educational needs of those in the BIPOC community. This organization supports students along their educational journey to improve diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in the veterinary profession and believes that a diverse veterinary community directly impacts quality and access to care.
Compassion, accountability and inclusion are at the core of who we are. Enduring change will require us to have measurable goals, create equitable opportunities, and remain committed to progress. To catalyze this change, we will work with industry leaders and grassroots organizations on best practices for diversity, equity and inclusion; leveraging the power of the entire veterinary community to drive change.
