One of the greatest challenges for human-service agencies today is to meet the needs of their diverse clients and participants. The recreation profession, by its very nature, serves individuals through a wide range of agencies and programs. Yet constituents come to those programs with a host of different experiences, backgrounds, and world-views. How can we best serve these diverse constituents? Understanding issues of race and ethnicity, age, disability, sexual identity, social class, and gender has become essential for effective organizations. This book provides a unique and comprehensive discussion of the journey toward greater diversity and multiculturalism in recreation policies and programs.
