Veterinary Industry Summary: June 9–15, 2024

June 9–15, 2024


Juneteenth National Independence Day, the national holiday celebrating the end of slavery in the United States, is upon us. Federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865 — two-and-a-half years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation — to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people were freed.

Texas was the first state to declare Juneteenth an official holiday in 1979, and several other states did the same in later years. In 2021, Juneteenth became a federal holiday.

While progress has been made to promote diversity in veterinary medicine recently, there is still much work to be done. According to 2023 data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 1.3% of veterinarians in the United States are Black or African American, compared to 14.4% of the U.S. population.

Many industry organizations are working to diversify the profession and promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB), including BlackDVM Network, Diversify Veterinary Medicine Coalition, Multicultural Veterinary Medical Association, blendVET, and others.

According to the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC): “Contrary to societal trends, veterinary medicine remains one of the least diverse professions in the United States. However, our efforts to attract a student body that is more reflective of society as a whole have resulted in diversification of the applicant pool. The number of racially and/or ethnically underrepresented students currently is about 20 percent of total enrollment. That figure continues to grow and has increased substantially since the 2005 launch of the DiVersity Matters initiative.”

Happy Juneteenth, and here’s to the continued diversification of the veterinary profession.
