Abstract

Each professional is a product of their history and their current environment.  By conducting an analysis of your professional and personal influences, you can prepare yourself to identify your unique strengths and your remaining professional development needs.  This talk presents a series of questions that may assist women in behavior analysis in reflecting on their core influences and preparing to actively create the opportunities for new core influences.  Strategies are provided for identifying a mentor, charting your professional development path and purposefully advancing your career while maintaining happiness in both career and personal life.
