Media Training for Female* Researchers

Female* researchers frequently face under-representation in the media (the conveners use the * after the word female to indicate that all female identifying researchers are welcome to take part in the event). Journalists often encounter challenges in sourcing and female* experts for interviews, partly due to the hesitancy of female* researchers to put themselves forward. This workshop seeks to address this issue by offering media training specifically for female* researchers. The programme aims to enhance their skills and confidence, enabling them to present themselves effectively as experts. Participants will also gain insights into journalistic practices, helping them to better prepare for and engage in interviews. Through this initiative, we hope to expand the pool of female* experts available to the media and promote greater visibility for their contributions.

Aliénor Carrière will be available for follow-up one-to-one in-person sessions. We will be in touch with participants after the event to assess whether there is sufficient interest in such sessions to make them viable.

Please note that this event is exclusively for female* researchers in the Max Planck Law network.

The Zoom link will be sent out the day before the event (ie on 8 July).

Aliénor Carrière, an award winning French independent journalist and documentary filmmaker, launched her career at ARTE in 2017. Her documentaries span a wide range of social issues, from child soldier reintegration to the challenges faced by marginalized groups such as prostitutes and victims of domestic violence. Beyond reporting, Aliénore actively addresses gender-based violence, conducting training sessions and serving as a gender editor, spotlighting topics like abortion rights and rape culture. As a Journalist in Residence at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, she focuses on gender-based violence within the humanitarian sector, exploring the experiences of aid workers in Afghanistan, Senegal, and South Sudan. Through this work, she seeks to uncover systemic challenges and advocate for better protection mechanisms through collaboration with experts and stakeholders.
