Summary

This article focuses on the evaluation of diversity training outcomes. This meta-analysis examines potential differential effects on affective-based, cognitive-based, and skill-based outcomes to examine potential moderators of those effects. Additionally, the article aims to provide quantitative estimates of these relationships. Results revealed sizable effects on all three outcomes, as well as interesting boundary conditions for these effects on affective-based outcomes. Hence, this article provides practical value by providing quantitative evidence that diversity training changes trainee outcomes.
