Inclusion Network

Inclusion Network logo

Creating opportunities to help Kirkland be a more safe, inclusive, and welcoming place for people of all backgrounds.

Network members include a broad range of interests and expertise. Representatives from non-profit organizations, ethnic groups, self-formed community coalitions, other governmental agencies, the business community, faith communities, and neighborhood associations all regularly attend the Network’s meetings.

Besides offering helpful insight to City staff, the Inclusion Network also provides an opportunity for attendees to collaborate, seek encouragement, and network.

Any and all community members are welcome to join the Inclusion Network. The group meets every other month, generally at City Hall. Upcoming meetings are listed on the sidebar of this webpage.

Past Projects

City Hall for All
The Inclusion Network featured prominently at the first City Hall for All event in July 2017. Inclusion Network members representing specific organizations provided information about their organizations’ mission and how to get involved. About 180 community members attended the event. The 2018 City Hall for All event occurred on October 6, 2018. 

In response to the community’s desire to have a series of conversations about the challenges and opportunities related to creating a safe, inclusive and welcoming community, the City contracted with Eastside Immigrant and Refugee Coalition to create a self-contained dialogue kit that:

  • supports inclusive participation in diverse groups
  • can be used with a variety of question sets and topics
  • is relatively simple to facilitate
Find out more and download the dialogue kit by visiting the KirklandTalks web page.
