As part of Women in News: Gender and Media Freedom Strategy, a four-year initiative made possible through funding by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, WAN-IFRA has released "WINning Strategies: Creating Stronger News Media Organizations by Increasing Gender Diversity," highlighting media success stories in gender diversity.
The handbook seeks to shine a spotlight on media organisations that have prioritized gender equality within their organizations, leadership teams, and within their audience, and as a result, have seen a positive return.
Citing 10 case studies from around the globe, the publication can be used as an inspiration to media organisations to take concrete action to prioritize gender equality and inclusion in their management structures and newsrooms, as well as a tool for advocacy and a way to start a broader conversation on this important subject.
WINning Strategies is the first in a series of handbooks WAN-IFRA will develop to support media to create more gender aware organizations, in our pursuit to galvanize our industry to collectively find solutions to bridge the inequalities within our news- and boardrooms.
The report can be downloaded free of charge by WAN-IFRA members and non-members alike.
