Women in Behavior Analysis (WIBA) has the mission to empower, celebrate and mentor women behavior analysts and highlight their contributions to the field. The conference will allow all genders to engage in meaningful discourse on gender equality for the promotion of behavior analysis and professional growth of future generations.
The Women in Behavior Analysis (WIBA) Conference is scheduled for March 22-24, 2018, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
WIBA will be a three-day event, including a day of workshops, highlighting prominent women in the field of behavior analysis while also addressing the importance of gender equality within the field. Presentations will highlight recent trends in the field of behavior analysis, the importance of mentorship, organizational behavior management and much more. Attendees will also get to partake in the vibrant nightlife, restaurant and music scene that Nashville has to offer.
The conference is being organized by Devon Sundberg, Conference Director, and Sarah Cox, Marketing Chair, of Fishers, Ind. As WIBA approaches its second year, Devon looks forward to the event continuing to create mentorship opportunities between early career behavior analysts and experienced professionals.
“This year we look forward to implementing last year’s attendee feedback through increasing more time for discussions and adding formal mentoring and networking sessions,” said Sundberg. “Additionally we hope to get more people of color involved and engage men in the topic of gender equality.”
This conference will highlight the works of Bridget Taylor, Psy.D., BCBA-D, Janet Twyman, Ph.D., BCBA, NYSLBA, Sigrid Glenn, Ph.D. and Edward Morris, Ph.D. Companies such as Melmark, HOPE Group, ABA Technologies, Inc., ACE 4.0, EPIC, LeBlanc Behavioral Consulting, Alpine Learning Group and ABAC will gain exposure at the conference on behalf of their generous sponsorships.
