Description: Does this sound familiar? You work to set up a meeting or workshop, and try your best to get a good cross-section of the community, and yet only the same people come. You contacted the local chamber of commerce, and sent an invitation to the city planner. You called the head of the local garden club and other service organizations. From federal agencies to small nonprofits, the desire to get more people involved in urban and community forestry has increased. Still, it's hard to get commitments from all parts of the community. This lack of diversity often relates to ethnic diversity, but not exclusively. At a typical urban forestry activity or meeting we see the usual folks- tree board members, urban foresters, natural resource agency representatives, arborists, garden club members. But frequently, the participants in these activities don't fully represent the population in the communities where they live. This publication addresses ways to build diversity into your programs and reach underserved parts of your community.
