Accessibility & Inclusion

"In the Recreation & Parks industry, it's important to not just talk the talk, But to walk the walk in regards to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The work that we do means everyone leaves feeling valued and fulfilled." - Dr. Debra Blair, Associate Professor of Sports and Recreation Management, Temple University
