Embracing New People
We want to be good at embracing new people, to truly be a welcoming community, which people experience as friendly. We will try to foster an atmosphere of hospitality. We want to help people feel safe and in control; to allow them the freedom to blend in easily; to communicate clear information which enables people. We are aiming to help people have a sense of belonging. There needs to be a paced and directed entry process. We want to avoid cliques, in-jokes and jargon.
