The 9th of August will be a big day for the GL’s gender and media programme. The first Media Centres of Excellence   will be launched in Tanzania. The COE project is a follow up to the gender and media research, advocacy, training and policy work that GL has been conducting in SADC since its establishment in 2001. GL will work with 8 Tanzania media houses representing 32 newsrooms. The media COE project is part of larger GL efforts to extend the media policy work to a more sustained approach as well as to take forward the findings of the Gender in Media Education (GIME) audit conducted in 2010.

The launch, which will be combined with a debate on gender media freedom and access to information debate, will bring together academics, media practitioners and gender and media activists. DFID grantees gathered in Tanzania for the GTF learning workshop will participate in this event.
