On August 8, 2014 the second annual Ethics in Professional Practice conference took place at the Endicott College Campus in Beverly, Massachusetts. A one day conference featured leaders in the fields of Psychology, Business, Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis. During the conference the sculpture of B. F. Skinner was unveiled by the sculptor, internationally acclaimed artist Gilda Oliver (on the left), and Julie S. Vargas, President of the B . F. Skinner Foundation. There is an interesting story to be told about this sculpture, as well as about Gilda, and we will do it in the next edition of Operants, due in September. As a reminder, the only way not to miss the Operants is to subscribe, and the subscription is free. Previous editions are available here.
