This CEU on Tuesday, April 26th from 12-1:30pm, will focus on how to examine and discuss bias, discrimination, oppression and privilege in the workplace. We will define and address the differences between diversity, inclusion and equity. In the field of ABA, we will discuss how this applies and its relevance on the updated ethics code. Suggestions on how to promote inclusion and move toward equity in the workplace and how to apply this to our practices will be provided.
Applicable participants who attend this event will receive 1.5 CEUs
