Review:

"This book can be used as a vehicle to start a dialogue about the 'taboo' topic of diversity. . . . It helps readers to better understand not only the theories surrounding diversity, but also their personal ideals. . . . . It gives them the opportunity to open up and share their values, theories, and reflections of things introduced and defined in the text." Courtney Flowers, Texas Southern University, US

"With diversity in demographics and attitudes on the rise worldwide there is an ever increasing need to also think about how to include and manage such differences in sporting organizations. As diversity and inclusiveness go hand in hand, organizational strategies which recognize diversity and seek to promote, create and sustain inclusiveness, often inscribed in law and/or outlined in policy or best practice can influence employee attitudes, group processes and the effectiveness of organizations. For organizations, groups and people to thrive, both diversity and inclusiveness must be present, and this active recognition and acceptance of difference is argued to be a right of all. Given this, publication of this text Diversity and Inclusion in Sport Organizations is well timed and justified." Rochelle Stewart-Withers, Sport Management Review.
