January 2019
Our 2019 Resolution: Continue to Redefine Leadership
 by providing opportunities for spectators to become participants in diversity and inclusion
In our 80th year, Inclusive Communities has worked tirelessly to provide opportunities to help promote respect and inclusion through education and advocacy.

Our mission-driven programs like IncluCity enhance and develop skills in leadership; intergroup understanding; critical thinking; teamwork and conflict resolution; inter-religious and cultural respect; and community building.

Omaha Table Talks provide structured but informal gatherings of people to engage in conversations about diversity and inclusion over a shared meal.

These and other programs give community members the chance to experience and share perspectives and in the process, challenge assumptions, attitudes and beliefs around issues of difference. We promote dialogue and participation, encouraging spectators to leave the sidelines and actively engage with others, leading the way for a more inclusive community where EVERYONE is valued.

Our resolution for 2019? Continue the important work we've been doing for over eight decades: breaking barriers and creating conversations through diversity and inclusion.

Redefining What Leadership Looks Like
for 80 Years!
Preparations are underway for our January 2019 IncluCity camp, which will welcome 75 teens from six area schools for a four-day residential leadership and skill building experience.
