Gender and Migration in Media is an international training targeting young journalists from Finland, Estonia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Germany.
During the online workshop we will focus on exploring migration reporting through different gender perspectives. We will analyse how gender is used and represented in different media content, how do we value sources based on gender and discuss the opportunities and obstacles for creating more balanced and diverse stories.
We will also focus on safety and discuss how gender affects our work as journalists, when we are reporting about migration, but also from the point of view of protecting our sources.
The main approach will be facilitated peer-learning combined with short expert interviews and keynote speeches. In the end participants will be focusing on developing solutions to identified problems in Gender & Media Challenge.
