The events of 2020 strengthened our resolve to make sure that our employees from diverse backgrounds are represented, championed and supported.
VCA has further stepped up and pledged its commitment to Inclusion and Diversity by introducing formal and sustainable initiatives.
In 2020, important leadership councils and groups, including the VCA EI&D Advisory Group, introduced Unconscious Bias Training workshops and strengthened, formed and sponsored partnerships with diversity-promoting industry groups including Pride, National Association for Black Veterinarians and many more.
We also shared the stories of many of our staff from diverse backgrounds—showcasing their profiles and achievements.
We recognize that this is an ongoing commitment and there is always more work to be done. However, we’re proud of the steps we’ve taken in 2020 to make VCA a more diverse and inclusive workplace for all.
