Appel à candidatures: Atelier «Women’s Edition» pour les femmes journalistes des pays de l’Afrique de l’Ouest.

Des femmes journalistes expérimentées de l’Afrique de l’Ouest sont invitées à participer à un atelier régional sur le rôle important des leaders religieux dans la promotion de la santé de la reproduction et du bien-être des femmes et des familles.

Le Population Reference Bureau (PRB) lance un appel à candidatures pour son programme de formation « Women’s Edition » en l’Afrique de l’Ouest. « Women’s Edition » réunit des femmes journalistes de haut niveau–rédacteurs en chef, chefs de desks, journalistes et productrices– pour des séminaires d’une semaine consacrés à des sujets liés à la santé de la reproduction et aux questions de population et de développement.

Le séminaire aura lieu à Dakar (Sénégal) en juin 2019 et portera sur l’engagement des chefs religieux de la région ouest africaine dans la promotion de la santé de la reproduction et du bien-être des femmes et des familles. L’atelier « Women’s Edition » offre une occasion unique de faire partie d’un réseau international de femmes journalistes expérimentées qui sont intéressées par la santé et le développement. Le PRB sélectionnera 12 femmes journalistes de toute l’Afrique de l’Ouest pour participer au séminaire de Dakar.

Pendant le séminaire les journalistes participeront à des sessions avec des experts de la santé et du développement ; elles participeront également à des réunions éditoriales pour développer des stratégies permettant de couvrir ces questions pour mieux contribuer au plaidoyer. Des visites de sites sont aussi au programme de cette rencontre régionale. Les participantes retenues à l’issue de ce premier atelier auront la possibilité d’être invitées, en 2020, à un deuxième séminaire sur un thème différent de la santé de la reproduction. Elles auront accès aux subventions pour un reportage approfondi sur la santé de la reproduction.

L’atelier « Women’s Edition » est financé par l’agence américaine pour le développement international (Agency for International Development -USAID). Il sera animé par des facilitateurs du PRB.

Qu’attend-on ?

Après le séminaire, les participantes de « Women’s Edition » doivent produire des reportages approfondis, des séries d’articles et d’émissions ou des productions radiophoniques sur les thèmes de l’atelier. Les journalistes auteures des meilleures productions seront invitées à participer à des séminaires et à des voyages d’étude en 2020 afin d’approfondir leurs connaissances en matière de santé de la reproduction, de population et de développement.

Qui peut postuler ?

Les femmes journalistes expérimentées qui :

  • Travaillent dans un pays de l’Afrique de l’Ouest.
  • Occupent une position influente – rédacteur en chef, journaliste ou producteur – au sein d’une organisation de premier rang comme les journaux, les chaînes et les stations de radio nationales et régionales. Les travailleuses indépendantes et les blogueuses peuvent poser leur candidature mais doivent fournir une lettre de soutien d’un organe de presse indiquant que leur travail sera publié ou diffusé.
  • Démontrent un fort intérêt pour les questions de santé, de développement et de population et un engagement à couvrir ces sujets.
  • Communiquent facilement et efficacement en français pour l’atelier, bien qu’ils puissent écrire ou diffuser dans n’importe quelle autre langue.

Women’s Edition brings together senior-level women editors, reporters, and producers from influential media organizations in developing countries to examine and report on pressing issues affecting women’s health and status. Up to 15 senior journalists from leading news media organizations around the developing world are competitively selected to participate in this activity.

The Mission

Women’s Edition seeks development of informed policy decisions affecting women through factual, accurate, and up-to-date media coverage that reflects women’s needs and perspectives. By providing information directly to millions of women in developing countries on issues that are important to them, Women’s Edition also helps to shape public discussion of these issues and to arm women with information that allows them to take control of their lives.

To achieve its mission, Women’s Edition is designed to strengthen and expand coverage of women’s health, development, and population issues in the print and broadcast news media. This involves increasing the frequency and prominence of coverage, using data correctly, and emphasizing women’s perspectives.

Women’s Edition Activities

Each year, PRB organizes two week-long seminars and study tours for Women’s Edition members on pressing reproductive health and related issues. Recent seminars have explored family planning, maternal mortality, women and HIV/AIDS, the role of men in women’s reproductive health, sex trafficking, and reproductive health of youth. Seminar locations have included Washington, D.C.; New York; New Delhi and Mumbai, India; Barcelona, Spain; San Jose, Costa Rica; Johannesburg, South Africa; and Nairobi, Kenya.

The seminars bring together the journalists and specialists from health, population, human rights, and women’s organizations. They include sessions on various aspects of women’s health and development; editorial meetings in which participants share experiences, ideas and reporting strategies; and study tours where the journalists can see innovative programs in action.

Special Reports and Programs

Following a seminar, each Women’s Edition journalist produces for her media organization at least one in-depth and high-profile special report, series of stories, or program based on the theme of that seminar. These have included special newspaper pull-out sections, features, in-depth news reports, editorials, and talk shows.

Management of Complex Technical Programs

At PRB, we have the expertise, infrastructure, and global networks to take on some of the world’s most complex population and health challenges on behalf of our funders and partners.

Many of our partnerships span decades, built on good faith relationships established by our direct experiences with individuals and organizations across the globe at the intersection of the environment, health, family planning, and population.

We work with a wide range of partners in sectors including government, nonprofit, research, business, and philanthropy. Our approach focuses on evidence, audience, and context.

For more than 30 years, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has relied on PRB to build the capacity of organizations around the world to accurately and effectively convey messages to decisionmakers that propel changes in areas such as gender, family planning, and reproductive health. Our capacity-building approach supports partners on the journey to self-reliance. We work with longstanding partners to provide resources and limited, highly specific technical assistance. For those facing institutional challenges, we provide a full suite of support, including mentorship from peer institutions, technical training, and collaborative creation of communications materials.

Researchers and decisionmakers have relied on PRB’s expertise to oversee multiple programs for the U.S. Census Bureau since 2013. In partnership with the Census Bureau, PRB created and manages communities to support researchers, data users, and policymakers working with American Community Survey (ACS) data; organizes annual ACS Data Users conferences; and plays a key role in the creation of Census Bureau data products.

PRB’s manages multiple complex technical programs for several partners and clients around the world each year.

Gender Issues

Gender, or how societies define appropriate roles for men and women, girls and boys, is a critical lens of PRB's media work, publications, community building, and training activities.

PRB’s gender work spans the United States and the globe, from young women’s well-being across generations in the United States to violence against women around the world.

We moderate the Interagency Gender Working Group (IGWG) website and listserv, co-chair the Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Task Force, and edit and produce print and multimedia materials that guide gender communities of practice globally. As a GBV Task Force co-chair, PRB organizes events that apprise development experts of new research and best practices on a wide range of GBV issues, including child marriage, female genital mutilation/cutting, and sex selection at birth.
