From 2-4 December 2013, hundreds of leaders and decision-makers in media organisations, civil society actors, governments, UN agencies, business and human rights advocates will gather in Thailand to evaluate the trends in gender inequalities in the media and formulate collective and creative solutions to reduce gender disparities.
Participants in the Forum will consider partnerships and ideas that can:
-increase the number of female staff in media organizations, particularly in governance and top management,
-bring balance and neutrality to the portrayal of women and men in the media including news and current affairs.
We strongly encourage everyone to join the global conversation on these matters.
