JMG is hosting a summer school August 27-31, 2018, open for 30 students from Newcastle University, University of Padova and JMG/University of Gothenburg as a part of Advancing Gender Equality in Media Industries (AGEMI) a EU-funded project that takes an innovative and integrated approach to combating gender stereotypes and promoting an equal, diverse and inclusive media sector.
The purpose of the AGEMI summer school is to raise awareness of the problems of gender inequality but also to share the range of good practices which have been developed to address them.
The students will (1)test the various units which comprise the online course and (2) develop skills in mobile journalism that will be used in a one week internship in a European media organisation in the year following the summer school. The course also offers (3) opportunities for networking between students, researchers and industry representatives.

Advancing Gender Equality in Media Industries (AGEMI) has three primary elements:
a Resources Bank of Good Practices;
a set of learning resources;
and encounters between media and journalism students and media professionals.
It is being developed by a group of researchers and practitioners from three universities (Newcastle, Padova, Gothenburg) and two associations of media professionals, the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) and the Permanent Conference of the Mediterranean Audiovisual Operators (COPEAM).
The AGEMI project is co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship programme of the European Union.
