The North Dakota Association for Behavior Analysis (ND ABA) values and encourages diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field of behavior analysis broadly, and within the organization specifically. Diversity refers to differences in race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, country of origin, religious or spiritual beliefs, ability, and/or socioeconomic class.

 It is expected that all ND ABA members as well as non-members who participate in ND ABA events treat one another with respect.
