9:00am to 1:00pm
Where: 
El Salvador, San Salvador
Type of Event: 
Category 7-Seminar and Workshop

During the 1-day event which will focus on the Gender Sensitive Indicators in Media (GSIM), participants including journalists and media managers would be sensitized about the importance of promoting gender equality in and through the media, and the link with the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Participants are also expected to learn about the different elements of the GSIM and would be expected to produce a draft plan on how gender equality could be enhanced, particularly concerning media content.

Given the threats facing female journalists and given the role of female journalists in promoting freedom of expression, the sessions will also include a focus on how these issues should be given more prominence in the media content from a gender equality perspective.
