Tackling inequity in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis
In 2020 the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB) released demographics of current practitioners in the field. The disparity of diverse practitioners revealed in this data is a critical issue that we saw as a call to action.
Our mission is to actively address the increasing disparity of behavioral services for our BIPOC, non-BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and Neurodivergent groups facing vulnerability and isolation by proactively supporting diverse practitioner growth within the field of behavior analysis.
Reduce or remove financial barriers hindering marginalized groups seeking entry into the behavioral field by offering scholarships for:
Test Fees and more
Cultivate a community of mentorship that is:
Supportive of diverse practitioners and supervisees
Inclusive of diverse works and research
Beneficial to both supervisors and supervisees
“We cannot fully address the disparity of services to diverse populations until we address the disparity of diverse practitioners in our professional fields.”
