What do Female Leaders in Animal Health Really Think?

Join WILMAH, VMX and Dr. Jessica Petty for a candid conversation sparked by interviews with female leaders in animal health, who, combined, have 292 years of experience in the industry and who have also mentored over 200 future leaders.

This is an important conversation for women and men. We hope you will join us.

Following the presentation, we will host 5 industry leaders to speak about their experiences with mentorship, sponsorship, diversity and inclusion during their careers, and offer advice to those within the animal health sector on how to build diverse work cultures.
