This year’s event will be themed, “Securing the Pipeline and Promoting Advancements in Diversity and Inclusion.” Our goal is to continue to raise awareness of the disproportionate amount of African-Americans in the field of veterinary medicine and to discuss ways to advance and secure the pipeline of Blacks entering the veterinary profession. We are currently seeking individuals to serve as speakers and/or presenters at our second annual conference. The National Association for Black Veterinarians invites proposals of innovative, engaging, and substantive sessions that will raise challenging questions, engage participants with practical evidence of “what works,” and create and encourage dialogue to encourage further efforts of diversity and inclusion within the field of veterinary medicine.
