UNESCO and Al Jazeera Media Network are organizing the "Women Make the News" event on the occasion of International Women's Day on 8 March 2017 at Al Jazeera Café in Katara Cultural Village, Doha, Qatar.

The event will be a series of TEDx-style speeches (10 minutes each) on the topic of “women’s representation in the media” and “women in the newsroom”. UNESCO and Al Jazeera will be inviting prominent and emerging Qatari women working in the field of media, along with Al Jazeera journalists and media students in Qatar to speak on this occasion. In addition to the speeches, hands-on interactive workshops will also be organized between sessions to give attendees the opportunity to experience news-making and studio-directing, on and behind the camera.
