Writing workshops: a great opportunity for (potential) writers
On Friday 3 July 2015, we held two writing workshops for aspiring and experienced writers. During the first workshop Liselotte Schippers, author of Kroepoek and Saté, provided the participants with information about writing styles that attract children. She ended her workshop by reading her latest work full of words-combinations that make grown-ups and children smile. Laura Coello Eertink then discussed with the participants criteria that publishers use when selecting manuscripts. The participants were able to test their stories -and those of other participants- using the discussed criteria and, in this way, gain insights into the strong and weak spots of their stories. The next round of workshops will take place in 2016.
'Kroepoek and Saté' was unveiled
On 13 June 2015, the beautiful children's book 'Kroepoek and Saté was unveiled to the public. At children's book 'Benjamin' in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands the book was read to by Sesame Street presentor Gerda Havertong. The children (and the adults) enjoyed it enormously. At the end, Apeldoorn's Alderman for Culture told the public that, just like him, many of the children in the book were from abroad, or had parents that were from abroad. But that makes it even more interesting for children to interact, get to know each other and play games.

The first training 'Discrimination-free selection mechanisms' completed!
The first group of employees and managers of temporary employment agencies has completed the training 'Discrimination-free selection mechanisms'!
Inclusive Works offers this training, together with Art.1 MN, to managers and employees of in temporary employment agencies.
The training consists of three sessions. The first session strengthens the participant's knowledge of discrimination law and how to apply this in their daily work. In the second session, the (unconscious) selection mechanisms and processes that lead to indirect discrimination are discussed. In the third session realistic solutions are sought and existing solutions (good practices) are presented to transform discriminatory requests into neutral requests.
We thank the participants for their active and positive contribution during the training!
