Kardan University, in collaboration with Generation Positive (G+) Organization, the Institut Français d'Afghanistan (IFA), Cultural Affairs of French Embassy, NAI Supporting Afghanistan Open Media, and Afghanistan Journalism Safety Committee organized the two-and-a-half-day “Women in Media” workshop.

The workshop included a panel discussion that was conducted at the IFA on the third day of the program. The first two days were conducted at Kardan University’s Parwan-e-Du campus on February 3 and 4.

The panel discussion was designed to support and appreciate women activists in media and to empower and inspire Journalism students in Afghanistan.

The first phase of the program provided two-days training on different journalism topics and media markets – followed by a half-day panel discussion focusing on opportunities and challenges for women participation in the media.

“This program was an excellent opportunity for fresh female graduates and senior students of the Journalism Department, where 40 female students from four provinces had participated, said Ahmad Sadam Siam Panah, an organizing member and a Political Science student at Kardan University.

He further added, “The main goal of this program was to inspire and motivate future female journalists, and firmly thanked Kardan University for facilitating such events.”
