Challenging Scenarios

Challenging Scenarios

An immersive workshop for developing active allyship by BVCIS, BVLGBT+ and BVEDS

With the veterinary profession being strongly encouraged to take an active role in reducing discrimination in the workplace, there's never been a more important time to put allyship into action. 

Challenging Scenarios is a brand-new workshop, run by members of BVCIS, BVLGBT+ and BVEDS as facilitators, that puts attendees into real-life scenarios, and gives them the practical tools to champion diversity and inclusivity in their practice or organisation. The workshop takes place in Suite 27 on Friday, 24 June at BVA Live. 

This workshop requires both active participation and reflective observation. You will be placed in small groups and work through immersive scenarios such as how to challenge inappropriate language and what to expect when you've challenged a colleague.

You will walk away from this workshop feeling more confident to challenge discriminatory behaviours in your workplace, a better understanding of why it's important to do so, and the practical tools to execute your actions in the most effective manner. 

Thanks to Elanco for making this workshop possible.

“Within the veterinary professions, we need to start conversations which centre those who are affected by discrimination. Conversations around diversity and inclusion are not always comfortable, but they are necessary to find effective solutions. Let us have the courage to start these vital conversions”
