The Washington Group on Disability Statistics (WG) has conducted or participated in numerous disability training workshops designed to disseminate information on the collection and dissemination of disability data, and the use of data collected using cross-culturally comparable disability tools developed by the WG. A list of these workshops – by topic, host, or targeted audience – is included below. For each of the categories, the most recent workshop is accompanied by a link to some of the PowerPoint files used during that workshop. Where relevant, and to avoid unnecessary duplication, only the most recent workshop has the set of slides linked.
