EMBRACING DIVERSITY IN DIETETICS
Dietitians Week 2023 aims to embrace and celebrate diversity within the dietetics profession by highlighting the ‘faces of dietetics’. The #WeAreDietetics campaign showcases the wide range of professionals working in the field, including dietitians from various ethnic backgrounds, genders, ages and abilities and emphasises the unique perspectives, skills, and experiences that each dietitian offers. This year’s campaign seeks to promote a diverse dietetics community, highlighting the many specialisms and roles within our community.
Dietitians come in all shapes and sizes, with varied interests and backgrounds. The #WhatADietitianLooksLike campaign aims to highlight this, challenging stereotypes and preconceived notions about dietitians, and showcasing their diverse passions and pursuits. This is about promoting the understanding that dietitians are defined by their knowledge, expertise and dedication to improving people's health through nutrition.
