There is a lack of diversity in the current occupational therapy (OT) workforce. This lack of representation can make it difficult for minority students to envision themselves as occupational therapy practitioners, impacting their confidence and belief that they can be successful applicants to OT programs. The purpose of this scoping review was to determine the current state of the literature on leadership development for undergraduate students and how this information intersects with minority identities. This scoping review highlighted themes related to confidence, self-reflection, generalizability, and authenticity. This review will inform a capstone project that will focus on developing leadership skills in local undergraduate students in an effort to improve their self-efficacy, strengthening them as an OT school applicant.
