Our organisation

Inclusive Works undertakes projects, carries out studies and provides consultancy services with the aim of creating more inclusive societies in which each individual can participate fully and equally.



Communication in times of Corona

One of the important observations that has arisen from the way the Dutch government 'generally' communicates to the public is that its communication is done for an able, Dutch-speaking audience. Other audiences were often left out at the beginning, and some still are.

On the 27th of February 2020, a deaf protester was seen on a national news (NPO) broadcast about the measures instated by the national government to halt the spread of Covid-19, holding a billboard wherein he was requesting to have a sign language translator present for all broadcasts with important news on Covid-19. Wouter Bolier, spokesperson for Ieder(in), an interest group for people with a disability or chronic illness, shares that opinion. 'People, including people with a disability, simply have the right to accessible information. That is a human right.'

Similarly, people who do not speak Dutch have suffered from disinformation. They resort to their network and those who do speak Dutch (or understand it) to get informed. News website Dutchnews has, therefore, compiled the most important facts on Corona virus in the Netherlands and translated these into English:

Coronavirus in the Netherlands, what you need to know.

The Netherlands drops from 2nd to 12th place in LGBTI+ rights. Inclusive Works ahead in combating Hate Speech

The eight Annual Review of ILGA-Europe has examined the advances made at national level country-by-country in the 12 months from January to December 2018. The Rainbow Map&Index presents a picture of what the policy landscape is like right now, while the Annual Review also attempts to answer the question “what’s next?”

In order to improve the legal and policy situation of LGBTI people in Netherlands, ILGA-Europe recommend, amongst others, introducing hate crime laws and policies that explicitly cover all bias-motivated crimes based on sexual orientation, gender identity and sex characteristics (SOGISC).

Inclusive Works has, since 2016, worked to making Hate Speech Laws more broadly know to everyone in the Netherlands; including the LGBTI+ community. Together with experts, we drafted the handbook “Hate Speech: What can I do about it?” We give workshops to professionals and guest lessons to youths.

Accessibility Prize

Inclusive Works has been nominated for the 'Accessibility Prize' given out by the City of Utrecht. We are very proud to have been nominated. Our nomination is due to our work coaching and providing guidance to volunteers, interns and other individuals looking for a job in the Dutch work force. We have provided guidance to many individuals without any experience in the Dutch labour market and sometimes, also limited Dutch language skills. Some of the individuals we have coached:

Combating Hate Speech

Inclusive Works has been pushing forward the agenda to help combat Hate Speech. With our Manual, lessons and workshops, for instance, we have reached minorities and majorities alike and informed them about the concrete steps they can take if they encounter Hate Speech. We are now, together with the students of the Arts Academy of Utrecht (HKU) developing new tools to make this information even more accessible for everyone.

 

Work Ethics

Inclusive Works likes to make sure that its employees and other people who are directly involved in the organisation are aware that they may not incited hatred or discriminate in order to fully comply with these ethical norms. Are you curious which concrete values Inclusive Works adheres to?
