Language is a vital part of human connection which allows us to share our ideas, thoughts, and feelings with one another. Language not only has the power to build societies, but also the ability to tear them down.
This module discusses the importance of effective communication, techniques for conflict-resolution, and highlights the impact of interacting with people from different cultural backgrounds, countries, & dialects.
Workplace wellbeing is often focused on improving weekly work hour or task overload. However, the stress that arises from workplace discrimination can have a major impact on an employee's attitude, work-life balance, and often times whether or not the individual remains with the current employer.
This module explores how wellbeing is directly impacted by a multitude of variables, from personal microaggressions to workplace discrimination or current events, and provides concrete ways to promote self-awareness and community care, which combat these areas of influence.
Current and historical literature demonstrates that diverse and inclusive business cultures improve team engagement, leads to enhanced innovation, and reduces associate turnover resulting in an increased profit margin.
This module discusses the benefits of recruiting diverse talent and consumers, and the effect of courageous leadership on hospitals who prioritize DEIB.
Currently, Latinx veterinarians make up only 5% of all veterinarians in the United States which means there are not enough veterinarians that can adequately meet the needs of this growing client population. While it is critically important to address this disparity, this process will take time, something that our Latinx clients cannot afford to lose.
This module will provide an introduction/starting point for veterinary professionals who wish to improve the quality of veterinary care they can provide to their Latino clients by understanding some aspects of their culture and why they may have difficulty seeking veterinary care.
In the veterinary environment where pet parent education is key, it is critical to be cognizant of cultural & learning differences, including disabilities, in order to understand the populations we serve.

Evidence shows that diversity in the workplace contributes to innovation and higher productivity, as different cultural backgrounds introduce new ways of thinking, language skills, and experiences. Celebrating our differences and creating inclusive environments, opens the door to allyship, promotes positivity, and supports the values, beliefs, and behaviors that shape a teams effectiveness.
This module focuses on the importance of diversity & allyship including self-education, leveraging privilege and power, and empathizing with others who are systemically disempowered.
