Rome, 19/20 February 2024

The 2nd workshop of peer-to-peer program on portrayal of women and men in political coverage was held in Rome on 19 and 20 February hosed by Rai-Radiotelevisione italiana.

During 2 intense days of work, the representatives of 6 public service broadcasters and 6 journalist unions exchanged about challenges, priorities, and progress in implementing the strategies each of them drafted following the 1st meeting held in Madrid last November.

The production of guidelines for editorial staff intended to avoid stereotypes, the organization of training modules for various professional profiles, the creation of databases of women experts and the planning of round tables between journalists and politicians are some of the tangible responses which the peers are working on.

The P2P program is coordinated by COPEAM in the framework of the EU project #RewritingTheStoryEU bridging students, journalists and media professionals to change the political narrative through a gender lens.

Participants will meet again in person on the occasion of the final conference of the project taking place in Venice on 13-16 October 2024.
