PUL Mini-Congress Adopts Gender Media Policy

MONROVIA, March 24 (LINA) - The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) mini congress has adopted a Gender Media Policy which calls for the promotion of women’s participation and equal opportunities in the media.

The congress held in Monrovia at the weekend also launched its three-year strategic plan of US$1.3 million and an OSIWA-sponsored media monitoring project.

The two-day gathering of media personnel and managers which ended successfully, called for the creation of improved working conditions for journalists in the country.

According to a PUL release, the event, the first mini-congress since the PUL’s transformation into a trade union organization in 2009, cautioned journalists to ensure the utilization of the Freedom of Information Law, as a means of keeping the citizens properly informed.

The Congress heard from a wide range of partners, including the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism, the Diplomatic Corps, IREX and the National Legislature.

An annual mini-congress is mandated by the PUL Constitution as a platform for the leadership to make administrative and financial reports to its membership.

The Union’s 3rd and longest serving president and founding member, 87-year-old James C. Dennis, Sr. graced the occasion and cautioned young journalists to practice professionally.
