Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Diversity and Inclusion Statement

The Academy encourages diversity and inclusion by striving to recognize, respect and include differences in ability, age, creed, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, size, and socioeconomic characteristics in the nutrition and dietetics profession.

Illinois Academy Diversity Committee Mission Statement

The Illinois Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics aims to amplify the diverse voices of our profession. We support our community members by creating an environment that encompasses individuals from all backgrounds, ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, cultures, experiences, and abilities. We do this by increasing outreach to students to promote our profession, provide support to current dietetic students, strengthen connections between dietetics professionals, and strive to improve the well-being of all the communities we serve.
