INCLUSION, DIVERSITY, EQUITY, ACCESS

As an organization, the Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is striving to become an anti-racist and multicultural organization. As a profession dedicated to health and well-being through positive nutrition, we acknowledge inequities in nutrition exist, in part, because of racist policies and practices. The Iowa Academy believes representation matters, and change starts with us supporting and encouraging diversity and cultural-responsiveness in dietetics.

 

Here are professional organizations and groups to follow, striving to make dietetics an inclusive and responsive space for all:

Diversify Dietetics

Eat Well Exchange 

Inclusive Dietetics 

Dietitians for Change

Dietitians for Food Justice

Food & Wellness Equity Collective
