IVLP Impact Award Project: Workshop for Journalists on Discrimination and Racism in The Workplace in Order to Create Awareness-Raising Content

25 journalists actively participated in the workshop "How to Tell Stories to Combat Social Injustice and Discrimination in the Workplace." This comprehensive program, spanning five sessions, provided training on effectively addressing issues of discrimination and racism. The objective was to address the challenges of labor inclusion faced by vulnerable communities, including Afro-descendants and indigenous communities, the LGBT community, migrants, persons deprived of liberty, and women.

The culmination of the project was the publication of articles written by 9 journalists who explored and crafted compelling narratives focusing on individuals with disabilities, migrants, members of the LGBT community, indigenous communities, and women facing vulnerability in the workforce. In the inaugural week of the publication of the articles, more than a thousand individuals engaged with the content, indicating a robust initial readership.

"First and foremost, I want to express my immense gratitude for the learning opportunity that the workshop provided. It truly helped me gain new perspectives, especially in the sessions on migration and sexual diversity. I found it to be one of the best professional development experiences I've had this year." – Project Participant
