Geneva Solutions is a new journalistic platform dedicated to covering Genève internationale. We will be launching our website (genevasolutions.news) along with a daily newsletter in August 2020, covering daily news on Peace & Humanitarian, Climate , Global Health, Sustainable Business & Finance, and Technology. In the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic we have opted for an early-release of our Global Health news stream, which starting April 2020 provides insights into how the institutions and people in Geneva are responding to this crisis.

Les promesses des médias publics pour un meilleur équilibre des sexes

Le sport est le pire secteur des médias pour la représentation des femmes. Elles n'y sont que 4%. Image extraite du documentaire de la RTS sur l'entraîneur de foot Bernard Challandes.

La proportion de femmes interrogées par les médias oscille entre 20-30% au niveau mondial. Pour tendre vers la parité, Heidi.news a lancé le projet Heidi Gender Tracker. Il s'agit d'un algorithme développé à l'EPFL qui comptera, dans chaque article, combien d'hommes et combien de femmes sont cité(e)s. Lectrices, lecteurs, testez l'algorithme, pour qu’il apprenne encore quelques subtilités avant de pouvoir le déployer pleinement!
