This position statement on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Equine Practice was passed by the AAEP Board of Directors in February 2021. Pictured is a vet student at a stable in Ontario, Canada.

The AAEP recognizes the historical lack of diversity within the equine veterinary profession and the importance of representation, inclusion, and mutual respect for our members and stakeholders to thrive. The AAEP commits to creating permanent structural change by providing education, resources, and mechanisms for continual evolution of our leadership and membership to accurately reflect the society in which we live. The AAEP will lead the industry in facilitating improvements in representation, safety, respect, inclusion, and equity to best serve equine industry communities of all backgrounds, identities, and lived experiences.

Approved by the AAEP Board of Directors February 2021.
