The countdown to the Women in Journalism Conference 2014 has begun with exactly three weeks and two days left to go.
The conference is a brief reminder for women to come together and initiate a workable structure that will not only seek to break a timeless divide in the global quest for equality (in all ramifications) but also to drive affirmative actions in the pursuit of an authentic 21st century Media- a media where female journalists, especially in Africa, signal to the world that more than ever they are ready to stand up as a formidable force in the profession.
There are certain unique challenges facing journalism today, including how we arrive at truth in an era of abundant and unverified information, and the demand to objectively present information fair-mindedly.
A vast array of both local and international keynote speakers have confirmed their attendance to WiJ2014 and will be mightily involved in the break-out sessions designed to discuss and answer if not all your questions, at-least a judicious number of them.
