Accelerate! Autumn Conference organised by the Sofia Foundation!
In a media partnership with France 24
This conference builds on our Accelerate! "Women in Media" kick-off event in April 2016 in Brussels. Join us for a day of dynamic discussions with people actually working in the field to change the status quo. Because balanced news reporting is key for gender equality and women's empowerment!

Media content shapes the way we see the world. We need more diversity in the information media and in public debates. We need fresh perspectives and new voices to understand our increasingly complex societal, political and scientific debates, and help the media to remain relevant for their multiple audiences.
Engagement of the media will help us to come full circle: diversity in newsrooms and news products will impact on the perception of women as experts, help overturn persisting stereotypes, and ultimately also increase the number of women in decision-making positions. The result: balanced leadership with better decision-making that is of benefit for all.
