Working Towards An Inclusive Community

A Welcoming and Inclusive Community is a community where its citizens and members feel safe, respected, and comfortable being themselves and expressing all aspects of their identities. It is a place where each person shares a sense of belonging with its other members. It is home.

Welcoming and Inclusive Communities are based on ideas of integration. Integration, in contrast to assimilation, is focused on facilitating the process new members of a community, including immigrants, refugees, people moving from other parts of the country, experience beyond settlement to become part of their new communities.

Small Groups

Small group moderated discussion on topics of cultural competence, inclusion, and integration

Unity Alliance of Southern Idaho’s small group discussion sessions provide an excellent opportunity to learn about and discuss topics of integration, inclusion, and cultural competence — topics that can be intimidating to approach in a regular office or classroom environment. By providing a moderated forum environment, Unity Alliance of Southern Idaho can help any group to:

  • Foster positive interpersonal and intercultural communication
  • Increase awareness of potentially sensitive cultural issues
  • Develop a welcoming and inclusive job or school environment


Interfaith dialogue and engagement helps bring understanding and cooperative, constructive, and helps encourage positive interactions between people of different religious traditions or beliefs.
