In recent years, the demands for behavior analysis to serve consumers with diverse cultural backgrounds have significantly increased. Though the field is in great need of culturally competent behavior analysts to support the needs of an increasingly diverse population, there are very few people of color represented. Especially African Americans. African Americans and other minorities within the field understand the feelings associated with walking into a large conference and finding it all but impossible to witness a black presenter, and seeing very few African American women or men attending.This panel is intended to explore the topic of increasing diversity and improving cultural sensitivity within the field through dissemination.
