For women journalists and their allies: During this four-week massive open online course, which will be held from May 3 to May 30, 2021, students will learn frameworks to mitigate and manage associated risks for all women (cis, trans and femmes) and allies.
Although the course is geared toward female journalists, it is open to men and women in media who want to identify and manage risks using the risk assessment process, create a better understanding of situational awareness and personal safety, and develop pre- and post-assignment emotional preparation strategies.
This free MOOC is organized by the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas, in partnership with the International Women’s Media Foundation and UNESCO, with financial support from the Swedish Postcode Foundation.
Note: Registration is open anytime through May 30. The course will remain open for 3 more weeks after the end date, so everyone has the opportunity to catch up and complete the course assignments.
