Women make up only 28% of the workforce in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). But in veterinary medicine, that number jumps to 63% and at Ethos, 89% of the entire organization is female.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, Dr. Vernaleken & Dr. Renzullo talk with Holly Firestine, the Chief People Officer at Ethos, about the power of women in vet med. Along with reflecting on their own personal experiences as women in science and executive business roles, they discuss: how has the veterinary field shifted from a male-dominated to a more equalized industry? How have “traditional views” of working mothers, work-life balance, and who’s the breadwinner changed for women? How can we continue to empower the young girls in our lives to get into STEM fields?
And: an update & future projects on how Ethos is building a culture of caring and learning & development for veterinary professionals to thrive in.
