Meetings with journalism students at universities
The Union is active in universities to ensure that all journalist students are aware of gender equality, both in terms of reporting and in working in the media. The initiative consists of a discussion of a few hours on these issues aimed at stimulating a broad debate among students. The discussions are based on evidence coming from studies and monitoring activities.
Aims and objectives
- To convince the young generation of journalists that gender and equality issues still/ also concern journalism and journalists. - To include gender issues in the curriculum of official journalism courses.
Results and impact
Useful debates with students. High level of attention.
