Northspan launched the Welcoming Community program in 2021 with the goal to increase belonging of underrepresented community members and build trust between people from different backgrounds and lived experiences in Northeast Minnesota. 
An important part of seeing this vision become reality lies in understanding how community members across our region feel they are welcomed and included in various community sectors.  
This survey seeks to measure perceptions of inclusion from community members across Northeast Minnesota. The data we gather will help to identify unseen challenges to inclusion in our communities and inform future programming. It will be instrumental in establishing a baseline for where our communities are currently at regarding inclusion and identifying trends in inclusion in local contexts.  
Please complete the following survey. Your responses will be anonymous and will only be reported in aggregate.  
Thank you for participating and sharing your experiences and perceptions! 
This survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
