It was a privilege to be present at the GGM UK event celebrating women's roles in the media, and listening to a pioneering panel of women speak about how we can foreground women in the workplace.
GlobalGirl Media (GGM) is an nonprofit organisation that develops the voice and media literacy of young women in underserved communities by teaching them to create and share digital journalism designed to improve scholastic achievement, ignite community activism and spark social change. GlobalGirl Media UK (GGM UK) launched in the summer of 2016 and is rolling out a great program.
GGM UK participated in a panel on International Women’s Day to discuss #DayWithoutaWoman and how to #BeBoldForChange.
Inspirational Women of the Future
The existing gender gap in media, particularly new media, obstructs the ability of women and girls' to influence change at local and global levels. By linking young women internationally with seasoned reporters, educators and mentors, GlobalGirl Media teaches girls that their voice matters, their story counts. The Pitch Process is privileged to be working with such an important organisation, helping the girls to find their voice and build a confidence in their ability to speak with presence and power.
