The Executive Training Seminar brought together leading academics and practitioners from around the world to deliver training on a diverse, outstanding group of participants. The Training provided participants with an accurate analysis of gender-based discrimination in both traditional and digital media, as well as a comprehensive overview of the strategies and best practices to overcome it. 

Through a combination of theory-based sessions, training sessions and case-studies, the seminar covered a wide range of topics and domains, including journalism, publicity, media regulatory bodies and guidelines, sexism in the use of language and the representation of violence against women, (new) masculinities and LGBTQI communities in the media.
