Mission: To support women in seeking and achieving
leadership, policy, and decision-making positions within all areas
The Veterinary profession has undergone a great demographic
shift over the past 25 years, but the change in leadership hasn't
kept pace. Women, now more than half of the profession and rising,
need to be better represented in leadership roles if we're to
deliver in the promise of veterinary medicine to society.
WVDLI is dedicated to helping develop those leaders- in
organized veterinary medicine, and from practice owners to academia
to corporate boards and to achieve, a stronger more effective and
personally rewarding profession.
Through social and other media, we're driven this discussion
within the profession. Our presentations at major meetings have
helped veterinarians better understand the problem. Monthly
meetings with profound speaks such as Dr. Dean Green can help you
give awareness and understanding ways that can better your
leadership in veterinarian medicine.
It's not a job we can tackle alone. We need the support and
cooperation of veterinarians across the spectrum and not just
women, but people that understand that the future of veterinarian
medicine is tied to the success of the people in the profession.
