I AM WAND Campaign

The Wisconsin Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics respects and values the diverse voices, backgrounds, and contributions of its members, as well as non-member nutrition professionals. In the past, WAND had utilized a mascot that represented the homogeneous majority appearance of historic membership. One of our strategic objectives is to enhance diversity in our profession now and into the future, therefore, we will no longer maintain one mascot as we engage in initiatives to enrich our practitioner makeup. To honor and promote the diversity of our membership and non-member allies in an equitable way, we are launching the "I AM WAND" campaign. "I AM WAND" will highlight the important work and diverse faces of nutrition and dietetics champions in Wisconsin. We are better together!
