Episode 94 - Gender Diversity in Behavior Analysis w/ Erin Donovan + Kristen Lancaster

As a bunch of cisgender podcasters, we figured we could use some help in discussing issues related to gender diversity in behavior analysis. That’s why we invited our friends, Erin Donovan and Kristen Lancaster, from Confessions of a Behavior Analyst to share their knowledge and experience on how behavior analysts can improve their competence working with nonbinary or transgender colleagues and clients.
