This webcast provides results from a systematic scoping review of the diversity training literature with an emphasis on disability training. The literature review is introduced with a general discussion of diversity training, its importance in the workplace, and the failure of some employers to view disability as a form of diversity. The review of current literature includes considerations for design, content, and participant factors. The presentation will conclude with a consideration of existing disability diversity training programs as well as future directions for practice.
