“The AAVMC’s annual conference is considered one of the leading professional development events in international academic veterinary medicine.”
Giving talks about DIE, social justice, and Critical Race Theory has become a huge industry within higher education and 1619 Project author Nikole Hannah Jones is a leading figure in the business.
This week, Hannah-Jones will even speak at the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges’ conference.
This defies belief.
Ashe Schow writes at the Daily Wire:
Nikole Hannah-Jones To Speak At Veterinary Conference That ‘Focuses On Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion’
Nikole Hannah-Jones, creator of historically inaccurate “1619 Project” at The New York Times, will keynote the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges’ (AAVMC) 2022 conference.
Yes, you read that correctly, this is a conference for veterinary medical colleges – as in animal medicine.
But, as with most colleges and universities these days, the conference has less to do with science and more to do with being woke. A description for the conference spells it out (emphasis added):
The AAVMC’s annual conference is considered one of the leading professional development events in international academic veterinary medicine. Hundreds of educators and other leaders from the veterinary medical profession gather every year for a three day-symposium that features respected thought-leaders from around the world, explores issues and opportunities, shares best practices, and focuses on diversity, equity and inclusion. The conference also features the AAVMC’s annual Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill…
The schedule for the conference shows the focus is on diversity, with one of the first sessions titled “Diversity Community Meeting, several sessions about admissions and outreach, and a session Thursday morning titled “Use of a Hackathon to Design a Longitudinal Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Thread in a Laboratory Animal Medicine Residency Program.”
Schow goes on the describe other events on the agenda having to do with diversity, LGBT issues and even responding to the death of George Floyd.
What does any of this have to do with veterinary medicine?

This woman's grift is somewhat fascinating, while also completely laughable.
That said, she is a one trick pony, so why not the vet world! 😂 https://t.co/9H08IyGGMc
