Happy International Women's Day! Today and all month long, we celebrate the remarkable achievements of women in veterinary medicine, acknowledging their invaluable contributions to animal health and welfare. From pioneering research to compassionate care, women in the field continue to inspire and break barriers, shaping the future of veterinary medicine with their dedication and expertise.

To honor the incredible women in this profession, we put together 3 articles that offer advice for women to thrive.

  1. At last year's Fetch dvm360 conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, several women in the veterinary field sat down in a panel discussion to discuss what it means to be a woman in the veterinary medicine profession and shared their personal experiences in this career.
  2. An article by Pamelar Hale, DVM, MBA, explores why it's important to have women in leadership positions.
  3. From the 2023 American Veterinary Medical Association Convention, a session by Laila Proença, DVM, PhD, MV, MSc, DACZM, CEO and founder of VetAhead, examined the unfair disadvantages anyone who identifies as a woman faces in veterinary medicine.

Use today as a reminder to appreciate the hard work and dedication women do in, not just veterinary medicine, but every area of society. Women's History Month celebrates all individuals who identify as women. And keep checking dvm360.com for more articles and videos by women and featuring women.
