Equality & Diversity Group

The IAT, as a Professional Body, is fully committed to developing, maintaining and supporting a culture of equality, diversity and inclusion where all stakeholders, members, guests and other publics will be treated fairly and with dignity and respect.

As a member of the Science Council, the IAT has declared that we will promote equality, diversion and inclusion through our organisational policies, practices and behaviours and enhance the equality of opportunity through our activities as a professional organisation. This commitment celebrates everyone is different and has something unique to offer whatever their background or circumstances.

Equality & Diversity Survey

The IAT has never conducted a survey focussed on mental health and well-being of animal technicians and as the leading professional body for animal technicians in the UK, it is vital that we work to develop a strategy going forward that supports the health and well-being of animal technicians across the UK. The survey should include both IAT members and non-members.


This survey is being conducted by the IAT Equality and Diversity group and aims to:

  • Discover areas of support required around mental health and well-being ( including any other equality and diversity issue) for animal technicians

  • Give an accurate indication of any views and concerns

  • Identify where support and improvements need to be focussed, or resources directed ( such as specific articles, network/communication groups and workshops etc.
