This audit of women and men in Botswana media houses is part of the Glass Ceilings: Women and Men in Southern African Media Study conducted by Gender Links (GL) in Botswana.

The findings will be used in a global study by the International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF), through the Gender and Media Diversity Centre (GMDC). The centre is a partnership between media-development organisations and training and higher-learning institutions for the “collection and connection” of knowledge, and “collaboration” to advance gender equality and diversity in media across the globe. The GMDC has also facilitated partnerships around the fourth Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP), and second Gender and Media Baseline Study (GMBS) to take place in 2009/2010.

In Botswana the study is based on research in five media houses, with a total of 886 employees. Researchers conducted in-depth case studies of two media houses, and interviewed six journalists/senior managers/editors for their perspectives on the results. A further 33 staff responded to perception questionnaires.
