Didya catch our recent webinar, “How Can Science Help You Engage Your Workforce”? Managers, here’s a simple, impactful idea shared by UNC Charlotte’s Natalie Wilde that you can walk down the hall and practice right now.

June 15-17 can’t get here soon enough, and we can’t pull off the Spring Conference for Animal Welfare Advancement without a kick-a$$ playlist… …and we need your help to do it. It’s been three years since we’ve all seen each other in person, and that makes us want to get up and celebrate—we’re talking serious happy dance time.
We’re less than three weeks away from our first in-person Spring Conference in—gasp!—three years. While the hotel is nearing capacity, we’ve still got room for you to join your colleagues for what will be one of the most memorable conferences ever.
Didya catch last week’s webinar, “How Can Science Help You Engage Your Workforce”? Here’s a genius idea shared by UNC Charlotte’s Jack Flinchum and Natalie Wilde that can help bring different departments together when organizational silos are an issue.

In a few weeks we’ll be together at The Spring Conference for Animal Welfare, and we’ll have lots to talk about. We’ve put together a networking event for the first day that’ll really get the convo started.
