About

The project intends to develop a set of gender indicators to be used by media organisations in Europe, responding to one of the remaining recommendations of the Beijing Platform for Action in relation to improving the position of women in decision-making across the media landscape. The focus throughout the project is on women working in media industries rather than looking at issues related to representation, although some aspects of the media monitoring study will consider the ways in which women and men participate in fact-based programming. The objectives of the Tender are three: a) to discover how many women occupy decision-making positions in the major media companies across the EU Member States and Croatia, both in terms of their job titles but also their membership of major boards and committees within their organisations; b) to identify the extent to which media organisations have developed gender equality policies and if so, their content and broad approaches; c) to undertake a TV monitoring exercise to where women and men appear across factual programming. This project is funded by European Institute for Gender Equality. http://eige.europa.eu/
