For seven years, Kendra Thomson served in various capacities on the Ontario Association for Behaviour Analysis board where, with her colleagues, she helped lead efforts in professional regulation of behaviour analysts in Ontario.
At the next Women in Leadership session, the Associate Professor in Brock’s Department of Applied Disability Studies will share her personal experience through the lens of her various roles and “highlight what I learned balancing service, research and faculty responsibilities,” she says.
In addition to her faculty position at Brock University, Thomson is a doctoral-level Board Certified Behaviour Analyst and a clinician-scientist with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.
While Thomson acknowledges “the dedicated efforts made by numerous volunteers,” her personal contributions to the field of applied behaviour analysis in Ontario were recently internationally recognized by the Association of Professional Behavior Analysts.
Thomson’s talk is scheduled for Thursday, May 5, from noon to 1 p.m. via Microsoft Teams. Details on this and other upcoming sessions, including dates, descriptions and links to join are available on the Women in Leadership website.
Women in Leadership aims to support women in formal and informal leadership positions and to encourage the next generation of potential women leaders. All women and allies are invited to attend. Individuals are welcome to join the WIL channel on Microsoft Teams or to contact Jeannie Mackintosh to be added to the WIL email distribution list.
