About Us

In fall of 2015, The American Association Veterinary Medical Colleges launched Diversity & Inclusion on Air: Conversations about Diversity, Inclusion & Veterinary Medicine.Although there has been in an increase in the amount of diversity programming hosted by AAVMC, its member institutions and student organizations, there is still a dearth of available programming within the veterinary profession. Diversity & Inclusion on Air will change this by delivering more diversity programming to a wider veterinary audience. The program interviews and presentations will cover a wide range of topics and feature guests from across the profession.
