The AVMA Convention in Denver this year has only just begun, but it started with a bang! Re-enforcing what has been a huge year for women’s leadership, the AVMA House of Delegates announced Dr. Rebecca Stinson-Dixon as the winner of the election for the AVMA Vice-Presidency two-year term. She is the 4th woman to hold this prestigious position, and we wish her all the best.
The good news didn’t stop there; Dr. Melanie Marsden was elected to the House Advisory Committee in At-Large position. With her election she becomes the only female veterinarian on this current House of Delegates leadership committee.
The AVMA convention in Denver has much more to come, pushing women in leadership even higher with the celebration of the one-year anniversary of the Women’s Veterinary Leadership Diversity Initiative (WVLDI) scheduled for Monday, July 28th 2014. Celebrate this momentous anniversary with Dr. Karen Bradley, WVLDI Founder and President; please join us this Monday July 28th in Denver for some anniversary remarks and cake to celebrate the WVLDI and this amazing year for women in leadership.
