Inclusivity Division

Welcome to the Inclusivity Division!

Here at PPG, we are committed to being more purposeful in enhancing inclusivity and diversity within both our membership and the wider pet professional community.

When we speak to diversity, we mean the presence of differences in race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, disability, age, religious commitment and political perspective. Equity is about promoting justice, impartiality and fairness within the procedures, processes and distribution of resources by our organization. Inclusivity is the outcome we aim to achieve when the organization is truly inviting to all who agree to PPG’s Guiding Principles and Ethical Code of Conduct.

To our membership and our community, we see you, we will listen to you and hear you, and we are with you. We must do better, and we will.

To our membership, the very purpose of PPG is to build an international coalition of industry professionals who are informed, empathetic and ethical. To know better is to do better, and in an industry fraught with faulty information, preconceived notions and misguided behavior the Pet Professional Guild will continue to welcome all who are willing to champion this battle daily. As members of this organization, our highest calling is to respect the freedom and dignity of others, and that starts with awareness.

In pursuit of this awareness, PPG’s Inclusivity Division will be rolling out several programs to help attract and retain a wider and more diverse membership body. As a whole, the Pet Professional Guild will continue to embrace all voices willing to assume the responsibility for moving our organization and industry forward to a safer, more humane existence.

If you are a pet owner and would like to join PPG for FREE, please click on “Join PPG” in the top menu bar and choose “Pet Owners” from the drop-down menu. As a member, you will gain access to several areas of our website, lots of helpful resources and some incredible vendor discounts.

As always, the Pet Professional Guild remains committed to providing the connections and educational resources that empower professionals and pet owners to provide the quality care that all pets deserve.
