Inclusive Journalism course in Tangier

Young journalists in Morocco can register for an inclusive journalism workshop in Tangier, which will discuss the importance of giving voice to all segments of society, and how to achieve diversity in reporting. The workshop will take place February 18 to 20.

Topics to be covered include: the importance of alternative sources; basic principles of reporting diversity; managing prejudice, avoiding stereotypes and the use of language; and the importance of building bridges with civil society.

The workshop will be taught by Richard Cookson, a journalist working for UK TV Channel 4, and Dr Abdelauahab Errami, a Moroccan journalism expert and professor at ISIC.

The workshop forms part of the Young Reporters' Diversity Network segment of the Media Diversity Institute's two year training program, designed to promote inclusive journalism in Morocco. The workshop is supported by the UK Embassy in Rabat.
