About This Book
This textbook is a comprehensive introduction to the ways in which people differ – including race, gender identity, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, and social class – and the importance of these differences for sport organizations.
Now in a fully updated and revised fifth edition, the book offers strategies for managing diversity and inclusion in work and sport environments. It also overviews strategies for creating and sustaining diverse and inclusive sport organizations. It considers how sport can be used to achieve positive social change. Grounded in cutting-edge research and theory, and focused on best practice, this edition includes new material on the important concept of intersectionality, as well as brand-new chapters on researching diversity and inclusion in sport, and strategies for reducing bias. It includes international examples in every chapter, as well as useful teaching and learning features, and supplementary resources for instructors are available online, including PowerPoint slides, chapter overviews, and a full test bank.
