Getting Involved!

There are many organisations and networks at UM and in Maastricht that can bring communities together through events, initiatives and projects. Some of these are actively involved in cherishing diversity and making UM more inclusive.

On this page you can find out more about these organisations: who they represent, what they offer and how you can get involved.

CIAO Knowledge Centre

The Centre of Expertise for Inclusive Organisations (Dutch: Centrum Inclusieve ArbeidsOrganisatie, CIAO) is a Maastricht University based institute that was founded in close collaboration with the Dutch Employee Insurance Agency, UWV (Uitvoeringsinstituut WerknemersVerzekeringen).

CIAO offers a platform of knowledge to all parties working professionally towards promoting sustainable participation in the labour market, both for those working and those searching for jobs, and especially those who are not able to participate in the current labour market independently. To further this, CIAO does scientific and practice oriented research. It also develops various practical tools.
Because sustainable participation in the labour market and workplace inclusion pays off, CIAO aims to increase the number of inclusive organisations. For that reason, we want to share our knowledge and expertise with professionals and organisations alike, so that they benefit most optimally from the diversity in talent in the labour market.
