Project AGEMI-Advancing Gender Equality in Media Industries
On 26 February 2019, the Hub attended a workshop organised by the project and was delighted to see the fruit of the consortium aiming at a collaboration of universities and professionals to produce useful materials for students and professionals. We recommend this project wholeheartedly.
The Advancing Gender Equality in Media Industries (AGEMI) project is a set of tools aimed at teachers, students, journalists and media organisations that wish to combat gender stereotypes and promote an equal, diverse and inclusive media sector.
The project has three primary elements:
• a Resources Bank of Good Practices;
• a set of Learning Resources;
• and encounters between media and journalism students and media professionals.
The project is being developed by a group of researchers and practitioners from three universities (Newcastle, Padova, Gothenburg) and two associations of media professionals (EFJ and COPEAM).
The consortium believes that working together in an interdisciplinary team of educators and practitioners will enable them to produce materials and resources which will benefit both students and media professionals.
The project is co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the European Union.
It will be finalised in July 2019. But many resources are already there and we encourage you to go to the website and to use the materials and good practices if you are a journalist or a student. All materials can be used freely.
