This Learning and Reflection Forum from the Leadership Institute on Cultural Diversity and Cultural and Linguistic Competence delves into the contributing factors to disparities and disproportionality and what three organizations are doing at the policy and practice levels to mitigate them. Viewers will be able to: (1) define and differentiate between health and health care disparities, (2) define disproportionality and overrepresentation, (3) cite the impact of disparities and disproportionality on individuals with disabilities and their families, and (4) describe three approaches to combat or mitigate health/health care disparities and disproportionality in education and juvenile justice. Viewers are encouraged to reflect on the role of leadership in bringing about change.
