What can the career stories of the past teach the leaders of the future?

We can develop confidence, tackle practice culture issues and support inclusivity and diversity within the veterinary professions by listening to and learning from the career stories of the past

The question of how we can promote healthy leadership in the veterinary professions is an important one for current and future leaders. So, how can we develop confidence in making career decisions, tackle issues of practice culture and best support inclusivity and diversity within the professions?

Whatever role you are currently working in, you can develop your leadership qualities and use the influence you have in positive ways. When we continue to learn, share that learning with others and explore what can be learned from each other’s experiences of success and failure, we create strong models for career development and strong future leadership within the profession.

It’s valuable for all those in the veterinary professions to be able to get together with like-minded people from different parts of the industry for robust discussion, idea exchanging and supporting each other’s learning and growth.

In this podcast, over 20 veterinary professionals, including vets, registered veterinary nurses (RVNs) and practice owners and directors, came together at a Veterinary Women in Leadership event to discuss how we can all make a difference in promoting healthy leadership.
