Gender equity in practice: Public broadcaster announces strategic appointments

The South African Broadcasting Corporation "has made several strategic appointments in line with its commitment to gender equity. Jimi Mathews has been appointed as Group Executive: News and Current Affairs. Mathews has been at the helm of this Division in an acting capacity.  

[...] Chief Operating Officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng says by appointing women to the upper echelon of management, it shows that the public broadcaster is committed to gender equality".

Advancing gender equality in media

In my opinion, the most effective strategy to achieve gender-sensitive media is:

Increased gender-awareness training of media professionals
Greater action by audiences to hold their media accountable
Stricter enforcement of gender-focussed media codes and policies
More female journalists, editors and media house managers
