WHY DOES THE RISING LEADERS COMMITTEE EXIST?
The VIN Foundation Rising Leaders Committee believes in helping colleagues elevate their personal and professional endeavors, and through this effort, improve the profession as a whole. Improving lives of colleagues depends on a solid foundation of leaders willing to rise to the occasion.
The intent is to support those leaders to thrive as a diverse committee, helping guide their colleagues to success along the way. The committee seeks to serve and cultivate a community of pre-veterinary students through new graduates (up to five years out of veterinary school).
Operating under VIN Foundations’ Core Values and Guiding Principles, Rising Leaders looks to maintain a fresh perspective on the challenges and current issues within the rising veterinary community, and reduce suffering, and struggles wherever possible.
