Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Bovine Practice

AABP

The American Association of Bovine Practitioners is an international association of veterinarians serving society as leaders in cattle health, welfare, and productivity. We welcome and support any veterinarian or veterinary student, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, sexual orientation or any other demographic, to participate in all opportunities that our organization provides. As leaders in the cattle industry, we encourage all veterinarians with an interest in cattle to join us and participate in our organization. 

In this episode, Dr. Fred Gingrich, AABP Executive Director is joined by Dr. Liz Brock, AABP board member representing District 1 and Dr. Franco Leal, an AABP member who is an assistant professor of Veterinary Clinical Sciences from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine. The topic of this podcast is diversity, equity and inclusion in bovine practice. Today we talk about having uncomfortable conversations to address this issue to move our organization and veterinary medicine forward. Our guests discuss their experiences with discrimination in bovine practice and how we can address these issues. We also discuss how our organization, and veterinary medicine, can attract those who are under-represented demographics in bovine practice to join us and become cattle veterinarians and why that diversity is important to our industry and our organization.  

We also encourage members who have experienced discrimination or the feelings of exclusion to share those experiences on our Humans of AABP Facebook stories. Members can send us their story anonymously if desired. Contact [email protected] or [email protected] for more information. By sharing our stories, we can uplift each other and recognize our individual biases so that we can promote diversity, equity and inclusion in our organization.
