Veterinarians as One Inclusive Community for Empowerment (VOICE)

VOICE (Veterinarians as One Inclusive Community for Empowerment) is a student run organization that seeks to increase awareness, respect, and sensitivity to differences among all individuals and communities in the field of veterinary medicine. VOICE also aims to celebrate diversity within our profession (race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disabled status, religion, etc.), encourage campus environments that embrace diversity and promote the success of all students, and to emphasize the importance of cross-cultural awareness in veterinary medicine to meet the needs of our diversifying clientele.

VOICE is a unique organization that bridges the gap between professors, veterinary students, and vet tech students, encouraging people from various backgrounds to exchange ideas, celebrate diversity, and discover common ground. All are welcome to experience annual events such as melting pot, panel discussions, keynote speakers, and learn more about your PVM family in a way that will benefit you both personally and professionally.
