For media to be most effective in serving their communities, the range of broadcasters, print and online platforms must reflect the diversity and range of opinions of their audiences.

In line with UNESCO’s Global Priority Gender, UNESCO is contributing to achieving full gender equality in the media by 2030. The Gender-Sensitive Indicators for Media (GSIM) provide a comprehensive framework for media to analyse their content and operations, and form the basis for training initiatives involving media organisations across the globe.

Improving diversity and pluralism in the media also means providing greater opportunities for young people, such as through the Linking Generations Through Radio training guide. It also means fostering the participation of ethnic and linguistic minorities, persons with disabilities and marginalised groups, to have their voices heard and actively contribute to media content creation and policy planning.
