Read reporting from the first Global Connect! Gender Justice writing program supported by the Global Press Institute at http://www.womensenews.org/story/global-connect-gender-justice-writing-project/110812/global-connect-gender-justice-writing
Google New York volunteers will join Women's eNews and Global Press Institute to aid training of up to 25 women from local ethnic media and the blogging community to better report on gender justice themes connecting local communities in New York to international news issues.
Six women from the training session will become writers on retainer for a special series published by Women's eNews providing commentary and reaction on articles published from their country of origin by both Women's eNews and Global Press Institute.
Global Connect! creates an opportunity for local media and writers to improve their knowledge and sensitivity in reporting on gender justice issues. The training will strengthen connections between local and the global communities through Women's eNews and Global Press Institutes international news desks and bring issues effecting women's participation in society to the forefront of reporting.
GoogleServe will provide technical training using Google Applications to write, edit and deliver reporting and to allow all women in the training to continue to amplify their voices in the community on blogging platforms after the event.
