Wan-Ifra, United for News seek to create gender diversity in news reporting
The World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (Wan-Ifra) has joined forces with NGOs and United for News to combat the lack of gender diversity in news reporting.
To address the lack of diversity, United for News announced pilot programmes in Canada, Iraq and Ukraine to address the lack of diversity.
In Canada, a committee of top newsrooms will launch a collaborative process, building on best practices and testing solutions that will significantly amplify women's authoritative voice. In Ukraine and Iraq, Internews will test approaches based on a series of tools pioneered by United for News members.
