Abstract: We will no longer wait: the time for us to adopt the practice of cultural humility is now. Behavioral Leadership in Education, Novel Science, and Dissemination (B.L.E.N.D.), a research lab based out of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology Chicago Campus, rises to the call to action to build our behavior analytic repertoires to include additional cultural humility practices within the domains of racism and prejudice that will help bring the field into the 21st Century (Wright, 2019). Presenters will discuss the status of the Behavior Analytic field with reference to our professional counter parts, discuss strategies for behavior analysts, professionals, educators, and researchers to implement to improve our collective strength in cultural humility.
