Cultural diversity is a characteristic of plural societies, the way we think that cultural diversity makes societies evolve or become tight, make cultural groups remain segregated or integrated. It is important to analyze the management model of cultural diversity guide our interventions because it determines which cultural groups remain isolated, integrated and even annihilated. This paper examines and defends the intercultural model inclusive and cohesive model, establishing principles and guidelines for intervention from this model. The gender has always been a factor of exclusion, being for immigrant women an element of discrimination. From an intercultural model is to guide measures and actions to intervene from a gender perspective, determining the need in society to form an intercultural coexistence to achieve integration of all people (immigrant and native). We are all aware of the importance of the struggle for respect for freedom of ideas and integration of differences as essential elements in human dignity, and culture and gender are elements of this process.
