  • Spots available: 0

Every year our organization has a national meetup at the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo(FNCE). This is a time for our community to connect with on another and grow. We would love support with the logistics of this upcoming FNCE meetup taking place in early October in Minneapolis. This would involve:

  • Identifying locations to host the event and getting quotes for the event
  • Helping to identify and communicate with vendors needed for the event (catering, DJ, photographer...)
  • Helping DD team stay organized with all the logistics leading up to event (i.e. to do list or work plan)
  • (Nice to have) Identifying potential sponsors that can help support the cost of the event

Mission Statement

To increase the racial and ethnic diversity in the field of nutrition by breaking down barriers, and empowering students to join the next generation of nutrition experts

Description

The idea for Diversify Dietetics was born out of a need that our co-founders and registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs), Deanna Belleny Lewis and Tamara Melton, did not see was being met: a community to attract, encourage and empower students and young professionals of color who were seeking careers in the field of nutrition and dietetics. According to the Commission on Dietetic Registration only about 11% of dietitians make up all reported ethnic minority groups (including Asian, African-American, American Indian, Alaskan Native, Latinx, & Pacific Islander), a demographic profile that has been essentially unchanged since 2007.

Since April 2018, the organization has created programming focused on supporting students and professional of color with hopes that it will shake up the status quo and drive change in the field’s demographics. Our vision is to have a field of nutritoin that reflects the diverse communities we serve. Programming includes local meet-ups, Diversify Dietetics Mentor Program,Professional Development workshops, webinars and summits and the the Diversify Dietetics Internship Program.
