What responsibilities do public service broadcasters have to advance gender equality? What can media companies learn from one another to be true societal agents of change? Which organisational policies and strategies are the most efficient to drive change?

On the occasion of the launch of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) “All Things Being Equal” report, expert panelists will share their insight and experience on embracing and implementing gender equality policies as employers and developing the inclusive culture to innovate and represent all audiences.

Panel discussion with:

  • Larissa Bieler, Director, Swissinfo

  • Martin Chungong, Secretary-General, Inter-Parliamentary Union and Chair of the Global Board of the International Gender Champions

  • Noel Curran, Director General, EBU

  • Claire Somerville, Executive Director of the Gender Centre, the Graduate Institute, Geneva (moderator)

  • Aniela Unguresan, Co-founder of the EDGE Certification and Geneva Gender Champion

This event is organised in partnership with the EBU with the support of the Gender Centre of the Graduate Institute.
