The Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies, in collaboration with the Cyprus Journalists Union, organized a Gender and Media Training Workshop that took place at the Journalist House on 13 November 2009.

Conducting the workshop was Ms Garjan Sterk, researcher and consultant on media and diversity, Ms Μarga Miltenburg, former journalist and Director of ZijSpreekt (SheSpeaks) in Holland, and Ms Maria Aggeli, Associate Researcher at the Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies (MIGS).

The main aim of the workshop was to discuss how the media can contribute towards the realization of gender equality and promote the equal participation of women in public life. The workshop, that was attended by ten journalists from both the print and radio media, also aimed to explore ways in which journalists can incorporate a gender perspective in their work and promote non-biased and gender-balanced reporting through constructive dialogue.
