Inclusive Works: on of the 7 European partners in Migrascope

In January 2017 the Eu-funded project Migrascope has taken-off! Inclusive Works is one of the seven European partners in the project. The objective of the project is to increase the access to work and foster integration at the workplace for migrants. By focusing on the capacity building of both migrants and employers, several important objectives will be targeted:

  • Implement new good practices of integration at the workplace through the method of transnational work-shadowing among employers;

  • Build the capacity of migrants through better management of their expectations;

  • Build the capacity of employers by addressing their expectations or disappointments and by breaking stereotypes;

  • Identify and empower successful migrant entrepreneurs who would act as role models;

  • Facilitate the access to work and reduce barriers by developing innovative and interactive e-tools.

Write & Unite 2016: Award Ceremony

Inclusive Works held this year's Write & Unite Award Ceremony at Theater Schiller Place Royale, in Utrecht. The lively event included a friendly welcome, and an interactive discussion with this year’s competitors and their experience of the competition. The Jury Report for the competition was read to the audience and the winners announced. The event was rounded off cheerfully with drinks and mingling. On a more sombre note, the Jury, organisers and audience took a moment to pay their respects to one of the past Jury members, Karen Woets who passed away in November 2016.

The winners of Write and Unite 2016:

Carolijn Leisink for age category 1-3

Alieke Bruins for age category 4-6

Smile; a small but significant act of inclusion!

2017 has started with some very negative news. Hate, intolerance and exclusion is seen in politics (in the USA), acts of terrorism (against Muslims in Canada) and surge of anti-migrant incidents (as the fire on an refugee centre in Twello, the Netherlands).

What can YOU do? Smile to someone who might be feeling unwelcome. This is a small, but significant act of Inclusion!
