IFJ Conference: Ethics and Gender: Equality in the newsroom

May 28, 2009

What is women's representation in the news management? How do women journalists make their way in today's media changes? What role can journalists unions play in promoting gender equality? How can media strengthen gender portrayal in the news?

These are some of the questions that will be addressed at the International Federation of Journalists' (IFJ) Conference on Ethics and Gender-Equality in the newsroom on 30-31st May at the International Auditorium Boulevard du Roi Albert II, 5 1210 Bruxelles

In addition to the launch of the IFJ gender booklet on "Getting the balance right", the conference will examine the performance of journalists in reporting gender issues and how greater equality improves journalism ethics. The conference will also assess the status of women in the media and examine the role journalists' unions play in promoting gender ethics in the newsroom.

60 journalists from across the world will convene in Brussels to discuss and assess a range of programmes and campaigns that have been tried and tested out in the recent years.

A whole day will be dedicated to IFJ affiliates' initiatives to stop gender inequalities in the profession.

The Conference is sponsored by UNESCO, LO.TCO, IMS the Norwegian ministry of Foreign affairs and the IFJ.
