NVA reaffirms commitment to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion and creating a welcoming culture where colleagues can bring their whole selves to work
National Veterinary Associates (NVA) is proud to announce that it has signed the Pride Veterinary Medical Community (PrideVMC) Gender Identity Bill of Rights, reinforcing our community’s commitment to promoting a welcoming work environment for all team members, new hires and job candidates. At NVA, we celebrate diversity and strongly believe that all LGBTQ+ colleagues across our hospitals and pet resorts deserve to be supported in the workplace as the community delivers progressive, compassionate and exceptional medical care for pets and their families.
“NVA is proud to support our team members who are transgender, nonbinary and gender-nonconforming,” said Chief Executive Officer Greg Hartmann. “Diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives are at the forefront of our culture and critical to NVA’s long-term success. We are pleased to sign the Gender Identity Bill of Rights as the industry unites to support our colleagues and create communities where all are welcome.”
The Gender Identity Bill of Rights establishes fundamental rights for people who are transgender, nonbinary and gender-nonconforming in the veterinary profession. At NVA, our team members have a right to feel safe in their workplace to work free from discrimination and harassment.
“At NVA, we believe that every person has a right to feel welcome and safe at work,” said NVA’s Chief of Human Resources Tami Majer. “As an employer of choice in the veterinary community, signing the Gender Identity Bill of Rights is just one of the ways we are signaling to our teams and potential hires that we want all qualified veterinary professionals to know they have home at NVA.”
