With the theme "Women in Media on GAD Perspective", this webinar aimed to bring local media practitioners in one common goal in addressing their perceptions of gender in the media, recalibrate their practice so they do not perpetuate gender discrimination and consciously produce media content that will bring women’s issues to the core of national consciousness.

Topics discussed during the one-day activity include: GAD and its legal mandates, Women in the Frontline, GAD Basic Concepts, SOGIES, Gender-Fair Language and Comprehensive Anti-Discrimination Ordinance and Women and Media.
