In this dvm360® interview, Dr Sarah Zelinski shares the challenges of finding your voice as a woman in the workplace
Initially a shy and introverted person, it was especially challenging for Sarah Zelinski, DVM, medical director and director of philanthropy and outreach at Bond Vet, to speak up for herself as a female in veterinary medicine. In this dvm360® interview, she explains how she has overcome this as she has developed into a leader in the field so other women can be inspired to do the same.
The following is a partial transcript of the video.
Sarah Zelinski, DVM: But as a woman, and as I found my voice I have been told, you know, "Don't be too opinionated." Well, I'll send emails, I've been told that like, I'm too aggressive in my emails, when I'm just being assertive or asking for for something for my team. I have been told to be more pleasant.
