Women face gender-related problems worldwide and are still underrepresented in important areas. Although female representation has increased substantially over time, women continue to face serious challenges. At the 2019 ABAI conference, three leaders in our field discussed gender inequality and shared their experiences. The purpose of this second panel is to empower women and continue discussing the gender gap and what can be done to close it. Three prominent behavior analysts will share their experiences as successful women and leaders in academia, clinical, and organizational settings. Panelists will discuss strategies to achieve goals and manage professional and personal life.
