The training is designed to shape perspectives on ability versus disability and provide an open forum for questions and concerns for those interacting with individuals with disabilities.

This course will satisfy one core requirement of the “Diversity in Action” program. A box lunch will be provided. To enroll, go to “myTraining” via myWSU and type in “ability ally.”
