Maddie's Candid Conversation with Dr. Jyothi Robertson

Recorded On: 05/25/2021

In her well-established career, Dr. Robertson has consulted on organizational structure and processes in the animal welfare field. Internationally recognized as a specialist in shelter medicine, she examines societal and race dynamics that influence policy choices that impact access to veterinary care and the overall success of lifesaving efforts.

Her most recent passion project has been the development of Journey You Own, a platform for weaving spirituality and awareness through highlighting social injustice, animal welfare, the climate crisis, and education reform. The Journey You Own team collaborated with Maddie's University to create the course The Journey You Own: Practices for Well-being and Productivity

In this discussion with Maddie's Fund Executive Leadership Team member Mary Ippoliti-Smith, Dr. Robertson postulates how different fields (environment, education, etc.) are interwoven, and that relying on an animal-centric focus keeps us from examining some of the systemic, root causes of the issues we face. Her focus on how to bring new conversations to animal welfare that leads to more diversity, inclusion and equity will offer a fresh perspective on how an individual may face multiple types of overlapping discrimination and how that affects our work and success

This presentation has been pre-approved for .5 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credit by The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement and by the National Animal Care & Control Association.
