  Add to Calendar 2018-09-26 9:00 2018-09-28 18:00 Europe/Paris Gender and Media

Media constitute the fourth pillar of democracy. This means that the agenda of women´s empowerment
has to address the obstacles that women encounter in accessing media governance structures and
policy/agenda setting positions. At the same time, the construction of femininity and masculinity and the
treatment of women and gender in the media has a direct effect on the status of women in society. Such
construction can either create or reinforce demeaning and stereotyping conceptions of women and other
sexual minorities or instead attempt to subvert dominant biases. This executive training brings together
some of the leading academics and practitioners in the world to provide participants with an accurate and
up to date data on the state of the art regarding gender-based discrimination in both traditional and digital
media as well as the diverse set of strategies and best practices that are being identified and tried out
around the globe to overcome it. Through a combination of input/theory-based sessions, training sessions,
and case-studies the seminar will address a wide set of issues, domains and techniques including,
journalism, publicity, media regulatory bodies and guidelines, sexism in the use of language and the
representation of violence against women, (new) masculinities and LGBTQI communities in the media. It
will also provide awareness and training on gender based discrimination in the workplace, as well as tools
to engender policy making and enhance leadership and negotiating skills of women and other vulnerable
groups in the sector.
