Diversity and Inclusion on Air:
Conversations about Diversity, Inclusion & Veterinary Medicine
In fall of 2015, AAVMC 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 has changed this by delivering more diversity programming to a wider veterinary audience. The program regularly covers a wide range of topics and features guests from across the profession.
The podcast produces new episodes on a monthly basis using YouTube. Each month interviews and presentations on diversity topics and
programs will air for approximately an hour. Participants and viewers will be able to access the program live, post questions, engage in a chat room during the program. At the end of the program, the session will automatically upload to the Diversity Matters at AAVMC YouTube page for later viewing. An audio only version will also be available via most podcast applications, such as iTunes, Stitcher and Google Play.
The “on air” feature allows us to include international members, which is a high priority for AAVMC, and the YouTube feature allows for broader access by members of the profession including possible usage by faculty to augment any diversity content in classes. The certificate program at Purdue will also count participation and/or later viewing of the programming as meeting the “attending a diversity program" requirement, provided participants complete the accompanying summary.
Below you will find links to the YouTube page as well as the podcast channel on SoundCloud.
