Women and Media: Africa in Focus

Broadcasting Board of Governors
Tuesday, September 23, 2014
9:00 AM to 10:30 AM (EDT)

An emerging body of evidence shows that investing in opportunities for women can yield economic, health and even national security benefits for all. Many U.S. agencies and other organizations are working to improve the lives of women around the globe, resulting in a growing need to better understand which media platforms are most likely to reach them. Please join the BBG and Gallup for a conversation focused on this question.

A keynote, followed by a deep dive into the data, and roundtable discussion will comprise this event.

Presenters will include:

  • Tara Sonenshine, Distinguished Fellow, George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs and former Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs
  • Sonja Gloeckle, Director of Research, IBB
  • Magali Rheault, Regional Research Director, Francophone Africa, Gallup

This event is free, but registration is required.

For more information, please contact the BBG's Office of Public Affairs at (202) 203-4400 or [email protected]

This event is on the record and will be recorded for future viewing.
