Additionally, he addresses how they are portrayed and viewed in AKA’s Inclusive Excellence award, an annual award acknowledging kinesiology departments that are making strides in these areas. Additionally, Dr. Russell discusses how both higher education and the field of Kinesiology are discussing DEI and where we might be more attentive.
