Launch of the AGEMI project and web platform
February 26 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Come and join us at the launch of the AGEMI (Advancing Gender Equality in Media Industries) project and web platform where you can find a range of useful resources focused on aspects of gender equality, including a large Resources Bank of Good Practices and learning resources which include mini-lectures and filmed interviews with media practitioners on topics such as representation, culture, policy, advocacy and leadership.
Gender issues must be part of journalism education, training and editorial practices.
AGEMI has piloted two activities to build links between students and the world of work through its summer school and internships. Including such activities as part of media education encourages gender-sensitivity amongst the next generation of journalists and thus has the potential to influence the wider media landscape.
A range of stakeholders have taken significant steps to challenge gender inequality in the media. Join the discussions on 26th February and hear about the work they are doing.
Knowledge exchange is both necessary and timely, particularly in advance of the Beijing+25 review which will take place in 2020 with the aim of informing the implementation and raising awareness of the gender-media dimensions of the 2030 gender-equality agenda.
The event is free but please register here by 19 February 2019.
