The Public Media Alliance — in collaboration with, AWARE, and the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Thailand (FCCT), and with support from the UNESCO Bangkok Office and the International Programme for the Development of Communication (IPDC) — will host a two-day gender-sensitive workshop for media workers and female-focused NGOs.

Journalists and members of staff of female-focused organisations from Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand are invited to apply to attend this workshop. Over the course of two days, participants will develop their skills to combat gender discrimination and gender-based censorship within the media, while contributing to the development of regional action plans.

This workshop will provide the opportunity for media stakeholders and female-focused NGOs to connect with their regional counterparts, examine their roles in the reporting of violence against women and girls, and devise regional strategies for covering violence against women and girls accurately, impartially, and responsibly. Participants will be able to contribute towards country-specific action plans, which will serve as useful tools for those working in the Southeast Asian media landscape.

Selected participants will receive funds towards flights (for those outside of Bangkok), have their accommodations and workshop-related expenses covered, and will receive per diems.

For more information, eligibility criteria and to apply, explore the application form below.

The workshop forms part of a wider project to create an ongoing collaboration between gender-focused civil society organisations (CSOs) / non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and media institutions. The project aims to enable CSOs/NGOs and the media to work collaboratively together to produce more transparent, relevant, responsive, and accessible content on gender issues, especially addressing Violence against women and girls (VAWG).
