IPDC project priority: Community Media Development

The proposed project, Gender and Diversity Media Policy Toolkit, will promote the success stories in diversity and inclusion media management and guide media organisations across continents to implement tried and tested tools for successful gender equality policies in media.

To that end, AUCC has developed both a Climate Change course for its final year (Level 400) students, and also a 2-4 week training course for journalists currently employed in the field.
