Diversity and Inclusion in the Recreation Profession explores the construct of diversity within the context of managing and providing recreation and leisure-related services. Using multiple perspectives and comprehensive research, this book highlight the influence of markers of diversity on the issues and problems perceived and/or experienced by diverse groups; the nature and types of institutional barriers that organizational professionals often unwittingly create in their response, or lack thereof, to diverse populations; and transformational opportunities, both individual and organizational, that result through enhanced commitment to organizational diversity and inclusion.

This edition features case studies of organizations successfully addressing diversity and inclusion; an expanded number of professional voices and their lived experiences with diversity as professionals in recreation, leisure, tourism, and sport organizations; and a new chapter on religion and spirituality as they relate to diversity, in addition to refreshed or completely new content chapters.

Both editors have taught at the higher education level. Schneider’s professional experience includes the service industry, the lodging sector, and as an outdoor recreation planner. Kivel cofounded and directed the Lavender Youth Recreation and Information Center (LYRIC). The contributors span a variety of professions from professor, public health nurse researcher and educator, museum director, social justice educator, to learning and development consultant at a library.
