The Contagious Culture of Inclusivity
Tierra Price, DVM, MPH
The movement is to make vet med more diverse and that’s a huge task that will be accomplished over many years. But we don’t need to wait years for that change. We have the power, right now, to support everyone in our profession by being more inclusive. Inclusivity is not just a descriptor, but a way of life- it is our mindset, our interactions, and our delivery. The best part about inclusivity, it’s contagious.

Mia Cary, DVM
You likely have heard the phrase “getting comfortable being uncomfortable” more and more often as of late. It means that to help create real change, to expand and grow, to be antiracist, to stand up for the oppressed and marginalized – we must invite and initiate tough conversations. We must speak up. We must be active allies. Does this ring true but you are not sure what to do next and how to incorporate this concept in your workplace? Then join us as we discuss important elements of allyship including self-education, leveraging privilege and power, reaffirming that allyship centers on the oppressed, and the power of committing fully.

Tierra Price, DVM, MPH
Dr. Tierra Price is a recent graduate of Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, where she served as Vice President of her class and President of the Women’s Veterinary Development Leadership Initiative. She is currently a Community Medicine veterinarian in Los Angeles, California, but has a wide variety of veterinary interests including emergency/critical care, surgery, public health and lab animal medicine. As a veterinary student, in 2018, Dr. Price founded BlackDVM Network, a community that connects Black veterinary professionals for mentorship and advancing veterinary medicine. This safe space provides educational and networking opportunities for its members as well as a sense of belonging. Dr. Price’s commitment to highlighting Black veterinary professionals is directly related to her desire for a mentor she could identify with.
In her free time, she loves dancing, yoga, reading and soaking up the sun. Most importantly, Dr. Price believes we should be able to show up as our entire selves in our careers. She hopes to inspire others with her drive, authenticity and confidence to boldly take on challenges in veterinary medicine.
A very special thanks to Royal Canin for their sponsorship, which allows us to offer a reduced registration fee.
These sessions are designed for veterinarians, veterinary nurses/technicians, practice managers, and staff.
