Women and Media: Effective Partnership in the Information Space
13 October 2021
11:00—12:30
The development of the internet and digital technologies has had a powerful impact on how information is created and consumed. Information sources have shifted to the media landscape, and the role of online media has grown rapidly. Where there was once a deficit of information, there is now a surfeit. New communication channels, media, and content creators have emerged. And consumers are displaying a preference for a specific group of newspapers, magazines, and online resources which are able to provide up-to-date and, crucially, accurate information. As leaders of tech giants, media outlets, and public initiatives, women are playing a key role in shaping public opinion across a range of topics in politics, the economy, and society.

What role do women play in the spread of media and communication technologies? What can women do to help shape a media culture in the digital realm? What trends are characterizing the current transformation of the media landscape and media business? What can be done to encourage adherence to ethical norms in today’s media landscape? What successful examples of women in the media working with leaders of non-profit organizations could be rolled out to promote key women-led social projects?
