Are We Making Progress?

Take the 2024 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Survey


Nearly three years have passed since The Association’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee launched the first-of-its-kind survey in 2021. More than 2,600 individuals in the animal welfare sector completed the survey, allowing us to establish an initial baseline to identify inequities and disparities in our movement.

It’s time to reassess. Where have we made progress? What challenges do we currently face as a profession? The Association is conducting the 2024 DEI Survey now through June, with a goal of doubling participation.

In order to achieve 5,200 responses, we need your help. Can we count on you to take the following steps?

• Take the survey yourself
• Encourage and facilitate participation across your organization
• Share it with colleagues in your state, region, and national networks



to the organizations who have competed 80% or more of the study and have earned themselves free premium access to the study results.
