Online Communities Partnerships
VSGD would be nothing without the amazing community on Facebook. Founded in Feb 2017 by Ebony Escalona, the VSGD Facebook group rapidly grew and it currently has over 12,000 members, largely in the UK but truly international in reach. You can view our monthly insights report here. Its popularity lead to the creation of the highly successful VSGD: Live! event and VetPassport event.
The VSGD group is intended to provide a forum for free, independent and safe exchange of information between veterinarians considering diversification of their careers as well as for veterinarians to receive advice for how to remain satisfied in the clinic.
As a lively place for discussion the members are highly engaged and with a high interaction rate (see below for some of our stats). In addition, events are regularly added to the community calendar such as webinars, live stream Q&A’s, secret support anon posting, career profiles and more.
We are extremely excited about the growth and reach of this community and would love to extend the opportunity to be part of it as a paid partner!
“A HUGE THANK YOU for setting up this group, which has highlighted the importance of discussing mental health amongst many other issues, pointed arrows towards an array of career diversifications that some of us were not aware of, and harnessing the vet tribe to aid members with seemingly insurmountable life situations. It feels like a whole new era of veterinary collaboration has begun. Hallelujah.”
