Speaking at the event, the Coordinator of the Center, Motunrayo Alaka, said the programme was conceived because the media has a role to play in the society by setting agenda and promoting good development.
Alaka lamented that the imbalance gender in the media houses has become an issue practitioners should not keep quiet about because it draws Nigeria back as a society.
She said: “Some media houses don’t have woman in their board.
“How can the media houses preach against gender imbalance when they don’t have the moral ground because they have not given the women in the profession the opportunity.

“What we have in the media is unfair treatment for the woman and they are human beings, who need to be appreciated based on all their efforts.”
Alaka further lamented that when the media houses are sampling opinion on issues affecting the country, men are the ones being considered for solution and advice, while the women who are part of the system are neglected.
