At 1 pm Saturday, February 6, 2021, PATH Intl. CEO Kathy Alm will join the panel, “More Than a Statement,” of horse industry experts as part of the HERD Institute’s Diversifying The HERD virtual summit experience. The panel will include Dr. Veronica Lac, Leif Hallberg, Shannon Knapp and Julie Broadway, moderated by Gabrielle Chapman.
This is the first ever global gathering of equine facilitated practitioners that is hosted and led by Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) within the equine-assisted services field. The aim is to highlight the incredible work that BIPOC folks are already doing in this industry while also to encourage conversations about how to increase diversity, equity and inclusion within the EAS field.
