Written by FDM

After experts.ma in 2016, the 2M Parity and Diversity Committee launches, on November 5th, africawomenexperts.com, the first digital platform dedicated to women experts in Africa.

The 2M Parity and Diversity Committee works to improve the presence of women on the media realm, by launching africawomenexperts.com , the first digital platform dedicated to African women experts in all fields.

“African women experts deserve the place they’re entitled to in the public debate and the media, ” as Khadija Boujanoui, chair of the 2M Parity and Diversity Committee, said in a statement. In concrete terms, the website allows journalists, media professionals, institutions and researchers to use female voices, drawing on the digital and scalable database, as it can be read. The goal being to cater for equal opportunities and fair speech in the media.

In 2016 already, the Committee which elaborated the “2M Charter for the enhancement of women’s image” had set up the experts.ma platform, highlighting the electronic profiles of Moroccan experts. The Committee regularly organizes training workshops for women experts. In 2017, the committee broadened its fields of reflection and action by transforming into a “Parity and Diversity Committee”, two fundamental values that are promoted, notably through a conference-debate cycle entitled “Les Débat du Jeudi”, organized every 3 months around a current topic in relation to parity and diversity.
