GPB Dir/Gen to coach 'Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment' webinar

Director General of GPB First Channel, Tinatin Berdzenishvili is a webinar trainer on ‘Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment’, organized by RAI and the African Union of Broadcasting.

The webinar series seeks to exchange various stances and approaches to women’s empowerment and gender equality from broadcasters in Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Participants will meet online with more than twenty high-level experts from RAI, other public service broadcasters (Spain, Great Britain, Denmark, Georgia, and Australia), and media Organizations such as the African Union of broadcasting (AUB), the European Broadcasting Union  (EBU) and Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU).

“Our meeting was very engaging. As members of the European Broadcasting Union, we find it vital to share the knowledge and best practices that we have collaboratively created for our organisations and that we now view as effective mechanisms,” Berdzenishvili asserted.

The training was attended by journalists, editors, representatives of civil society, and other stakeholders from member broadcasters of the AUB.

Participants mainly from the African Media and civil society focused on policies and collaborative initiatives adopted by public service broadcasters to affirm the role of women in working contexts, in the audio-visual sector, both on and off-screen. Regulatory frameworks, strategies for participative democracy, and best practices will be the subject of in-depth analysis.
