Seat At The Table

WIBA 2020

March 19-March 21, 2020
Renaissance Nashville Hotel
Nashville, TN

            Shirley Chisholm was the first black congresswoman elected to office in 1968. She served for many years and also ran for the democratic bid for the US Presidency. Her words have inspired the theme for WIBA 2020. She said, "If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair." WIBA prides itself in giving women a seat at the table, but also providing a venue where they can strengthen their skills in the science of behavior analysis and professional skills including self-advocacy, negotiations, public speaking, conflict resolution and creating and implementing work systems to name a few.
               In addition to the WIBA 2020 theme we conducted a thorough review of our 2019 attendee feedback and WIBA has created this Call for Presentations and Posters (CFP).  To continue to strengthen the unique atmosphere of WIBA, we are looking for thirty 50-minute and six 90-minute powerful presentations on the topics of:

Women’s Issues--Presentations may feature information on gender pay gap, motherhood, work-life balance, childcare in the workplace, women leading small businesses, overcoming obstacles, and/or tributes to historic female figures of behavior analysis and their contributions, etc.


OBM/Leadership—Presentations may feature information on: negotiations, business compliance, mentorship, leadership, performance based pay, supervision, staff retention, and/or performance feedback, etc.


Women in Research—An opportunity for women authors or co-authors to share their innovative research in behavior analysis- applied or basic.  Attendees want to experience more data-based presentations that they can also apply in their daily work.  Research may include topics such as inclusion, parent training, ACT, working with schools, social skills, and feeding issues, etc.


Diversity -- Presentations promoting diversity within our field.   We are looking for dynamic presentations that will give our audience the tools to make sustainable improvements in the diversity of our field. Topics may include but not limited to: discussions supporting the LGBTQ+ community, Black and Latin representation in the behavior analysis field, cultural sensitivity with families including various socio-economic groups, etc.
 

Outside the Box— WIBA is a conference that features topics on how to apply behavior analysis to world problems (i.e. outside the box of autism treatment).  For example: animal behavior, athletics/fitness, behavioral medicine and health, working in the prison system, environment/sustainability, and/or safety, etc. If you have a presentation that does not “fit the mold,” please consider submitting anyway.

To apply, complete the survey below.  For approved presentations we will email the author the attestation form to be filled out and returned to qualify for BACB CEUs. Due date for all submissions is September 30, 2019 at 8:00 AM EST.  Responses for all submissions will be by October 28, 2019.
