WHO WE ARE
We help develop leaders
The veterinary profession has undergone a great demographic shift over the past 25 years, but the change in leadership hasn’t kept pace. Women, now more than half of the profession and rising, need to be better represented in leadership roles if we’re to deliver on the promise of veterinary medicine to society. WVLDI is dedicated to helping develop those leaders—in organized veterinary medicine and from practice owners to academia to corporate boards—and to achieve a stronger, more effective and personally rewarding profession.
Our vision is to inspire and empower veterinary leaders to harness diversity and equity by creating an inclusive professional community where all members can deliver on the promise of the veterinary
Our mission is to be a strong and impactful voice to achieve WVLDI’s vision by supporting women and allies seeking leadership positions, providing professional development and educational content, developing student leaders, and engaging in social media discussion.
Our purpose is to strengthen and elevate our profession.
