CNN is the world’s most essential source of mobile and video news. It has built upon its success as a 24-hour TV network, becoming the most dominant digital news platform in the world – CNN is the #1 global news brand, reaching almost 200 million people worldwide every month.

|18:00-19:30||Master-class 7: Gender balance in the media (supported by UN-Women in Kazakhstan)
The media plays a significant role in perpetuating stereotypes as well as challenging social norms that condone discrimination or violence against women. When journalists and media outlets present a more balanced representation of women and men’s roles in society, new opportunities open up for all. That is why media are influential actors and essential partners to advance the gender equality agenda.
This interactive and participatory Master-class on gender balance in the media and gender-sensitive reporting practices will provide media representatives with an opportunity to take a step back and assess their news coverage from a gender perspective.
