Attendees from veterinary schools across the Midwest worked together to create a community mural during the Iverson Bell Midwest Regional Diversity Summit, hosted by @uwvetmed last week. 🎨 The community painting design — based on a smaller rendering by artist Tia Richardson — was intended to promote diversity and inclusion in veterinary medicine, with special attention to academia. The Iverson Bell Summit is named for the first African American veterinarian to hold the position of vice president in the American Veterinary Medical Association. The main goal of the summit is to promote diversity and inclusion in veterinary medicine. According to the US Census, nearly 90% of American veterinarians identify as white, making it one of the least racially diverse professions in the country. The #UWMadison School of Veterinary Medicine and others across the country are working to counter this disparity by dedicating resources to creating a culture of equity, inclusion and belonging to better support all students who wish to pursue a degree in veterinary medicine.
