UNESCO in partnership with International Association of Women in Radio and Television (IAWRT) is carrying out a training of Kenyan women members of the Kisumu county assembly on gender and governance. 10 women will participate in this training which will equip them with knowledge and skills and enable them to actively participate in developing gender sensitive policies at the county level. This training is based on the UNESCO “Getting The Balance Right: Gender Equality In Journalism Handbook” and also part of UNESCO’s ongoing initiatives of building capacity of women and enhancing pluralistic media, including by adoption of gender-sensitive policies.
