DEI Update: 75+ Orgs Have Taken the Pledge. Will You Join Them?

Last week, The Association’s President & CEO, Jim Tedford, urged you to take action toward making our sector more equitable and diverse. The Association DEI Committee’s first-of-its-kind survey is launching on June 1, and we need to hear from everyone in animal welfare to help us establish a baseline and understand the current state of DEI. Right now, there are few things more important than this work.

As of this writing, the following organizations have signed the pledge to participate in the survey. Don’t see yours? Take the pledge and save the date to ensure you and your fellow staff members complete the survey when it launches June 1.
