The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics mission and vision are most effectively realized through a diverse membership. As in all health professions, diversity is necessary for access to and the quality of services for the public. The Academy values and respects the diverse viewpoints and individual differences of all people.

Diversity programs and initiatives are designed to identify and offer opportunities to individuals with varied skills, talents, abilities, ideas, disabilities, backgrounds and practice expertise that will ensure the Academy continues to reflect the characteristics of the diverse public it serves, including differences in:

  • Culture

  • Experience
  • Gender
  • Geographical Location
  • Philosophy
  • Political Affiliation
  • Race
