#16Pledges: IAWRT members around the world share their efforts and vision how they can contribute to eliminating violence against women

IAWRT Intl Board Secretary and Uganda Chapter President Nankwanga Eunice Kasirye: I pledge to champion engagements with journalists especially the female journalists on avenues to explore the use of different platforms and gadgets to sustain independent and meaningful contribution to the information flow regardless of the job cut offs amidst COVID-19.

 

With the rampant job and pay cuts with in the traditional media houses accelerated by the effect of COVID-19, it is more than essential to accumulate skills diversification and innovation to take advantage of the different online platforms to facilitate the objective and sustainable media practice.

 

I am planning to engage and strengthen different partnerships with a number of stakeholders to mobilize female journalists under the IAWRT Uganda Chapter to share and exchange knowledge and skills.
