“It was troubling to see that gender stereotyping continues to be so prevalent, especially among donors and board members who undermine female fundraisers’ roles. This research calls on the entire sector, and society more broadly, to not only recognise women’s talent and leadership ambition but to rethink how to address tensions between work and family and create additional supports so that more women can obtain leadership roles.”Dr Beth Breeze added:“Clearly, the current career ladders in fundraising are not supporting all of the talented people who aspire to reach leadership roles. I hope the recommendations are read and taken seriously by all who are committed to strengthening the fundraising profession and its positive impact on society. Together we can make sure that talent rises to the top.” Melanie May | 4 March 2020 | News 339 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Women missing out on fundraising leadership roles, research shows AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Tagged with: international women’s day leadership research women Women are missing out on leadership roles in fundraising due to a lack of work flexibility, appropriate health policies and prevalent gender stereotyping, according to new Change Collective research.Released ahead of International Women’s Day, which takes place on 8 March, ‘Missing Out: Understanding the female leadership gap in fundraising’ was commissioned by the IoF and carried out by Dr. Beth Breeze, Director of the Centre for Philanthropy at the University of Kent, and Dr. Elizabeth J. Dale, Assistant Professor in Nonprofit Leadership at Seattle University, USA.At today’s launch event, Carol Akiwumi, chair of the Institute of Fundraising’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, said:“I am committed to ensuring that the Change Collective strategy succeeds in making a positive difference across the charity sector so that the fundraising profession can be truly representative of the communities we serve. For a long time we have known that the sector has a problem in equal representation at senior levels when it comes to gender. We need to change that, and now is the time for action and transformation.”Informed through almost 800 responses to an online survey, focus groups, and case studies, it explores the experiences and challenges women face in achieving equal representation at senior levels in fundraising in the UK.The research found that while the salaries of male and female fundraisers begin around the same level, over the course of their careers the gap grows. In fact, amongst full-time workers, men reported current salaries 14.3% higher than women.The main barrier for women in realising their leadership ambition is the availability of broad flexibility in relation to hours and working patterns. Women also experience a lack of recognition of, and appropriate policies to account for, the full range of women’s health needs, and are also far more likely than men to claim that they have experienced stereotyping and/or preconceptions based on their gender.The report also provides recommendations for charities, fundraisers and the Institute to address barriers that female fundraisers face in their careers. These include for charities to invest in promoting and recruiting diverse candidates to boards and senior management, to educate their trustees about stereotyping and preconceptions based on gender, and to have a zero harassment policy for trustees, donors and staff within the organisation.The report also recommends designing a working environment to suit those most in need of flexibility, and to be clear on flexible working conditions in job adverts.The research is one of the key activities prioritised as part of the Change Collective strategy: the IoF’s campaign to improve equality, diversity and inclusion in the fundraising profession. It follows on from the ‘Who isn’t in the room’ report, which found that women are underrepresented in senior fundraising roles, despite the profession being predominantly made up of women.Co-author of the report, Dr Elizabeth J.

The GMO Answers five core principles are: New Effort To Promote GMO Understanding The program will focus on social media channels because that is where a good deal of the discussion about GMOs is taking place. She said the industry is ready to take on the tough questions like GMO labels. Enright says the industry is not opposed to GMO labels under certain conditions, “We cannot agree to a label that would convey to consumers that products made from our seed are somehow less nutritious or less safe than food produced by other methods.” She said where critics and supporters can come together is on the issue of choice. Consumers should be free to choose what kind of food they want to eat, and farmers should be free to choose what kind of food they want to produce. Facebook Twitter Enright admits, since this is sponsored by the biotech industry including BASF, Bayer CropScience, Dow AgroSciences LLC, DuPont, Monsanto Company and Syngenta, there will be a good deal of skepticism. However, she said an open and honest dialogue may win some people over, “Food is personal so we need to be willing to have a discussion that is personal, emotional, and scientific.” She added that this type of open conversation, connecting consumers to experts in academia, government and the industry, is absolutely necessary to advance food and agricultural research to ensure that everyone has access to the highest quality, most sustainably produced food.

We hope to be a reliable resource on how our food is grown.” Cathleen EnrightThe debate of GMO food production is not new, but what is new is the approach being taken by this new program called GMO Answers. “GMOs are a growing topic of discussion today, with a wide range of questions and emotions,” Cathleen Enright, Ph.D., spokesperson for GMO Answers, said. “Food is personal, so we want to open the door for personal discussions. We recognize we haven’t done the best job communicating about GMOs—what they are, how they are developed, food safety information—the science, data and processes.

June 7, 2021 Find out more Journalists arrested at South Carolina apartment complex where two diedReporters Susan Ardis and Jenna Kurzyna were detained and handcuffed at a public housing complex in Columbia, South Carolina, on January 29. Ardis and Kurzyna are reporters with the local CBS affiliate, WLTX, and were on location at the Allen Benedict Court public housing complex asking for public records on a recent gas leak that left two dead. Both identified themselves as reporters but were still handcuffed by private security and told they were trespassing. The security officers were brought in to patrol the area as residents returned to their homes to collect belongings after the gas leak forced them to evacuate. “I couldn’t imagine why a reporter was arrested if they identified as a reporter,” a lawyer told The State, a local newspaper. Kurzyna and Ardis were released shortly after and the Columbia Housing Authority has since apologized for the “unfortunate incident.” Organisation News News United StatesAmericas President Donald Trump spoke at length about his relationship with the media during a January 31 Oval Office interview with The New York Times. When asked about his attitude towards journalists President Trump shifted his answers, calling himself the “victim” when it came to unfair coverage. In the meeting, which he held with Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger and reporters Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker, President Trump alluded to his hometown of New York and insisted he was “entitled to a great story — just one — from my newspaper.” He also took credit for coining the term “fake news,” but didn’t admit fault for how the term has been used by foreign governments to crack down on journalists. “I don’t like that,” said the president. “I mean I don’t like that. I don’t like, though I do think it’s very bad for a country when the news is not accurately portrayed.” After President Trump said the Times “treats me so unbelievably terribly,” Sulzberger asserted, “You know our job is to cover people and institutions of power toughly and aggressively. And it’s never fun to be on the other side of that. You have my commitment that as we do that … toughly and aggressively, we will also do it fairly.” This is not Sulzberger’s first meeting with the president; after a previous meeting in July, Sulzberger published a statement in his paper expressing his concern for President Trump’s “deeply troubling anti-press rhetoric.” WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists President Trump discusses “Fake News” and its impact with New York Times Students at a public high school in Indiana were told not to publish a story about sexual assault in their school magazine because of what school officials called the “sensitive” nature of the subject, BuzzFeed News reported on January 28. After a Plainfield High School student was arrested and accused of a series of sexual assaults in October, then-editor and Plainfield alumna Kyra Howard was told the case wouldn’t be appropriate for the magazine to cover. Howard suggested instead that the students report on the prevention of sexual assault on their campus and were again denied permission. “I don’t understand why the administration wouldn’t want us to put out something that’s factual,” said Howard. School officials told BuzzFeed they have the right to censor controversial articles, especially if the school pays for the publication—the school, however, does not fund the magazine. State legislators across the country have tried introducing bills to protect student journalists, but just 18 have succeeded in prohibiting administrative censorship; Indiana is not one of them.

NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say President Donald Trump called out Fox News reporters John Roberts and Gillian Turner in a January 27 tweet, saying they “have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations than the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN & NBC!” The tweet came two days after President Trump struck a deal to reopen the government without funding for a border wall. It isn’t uncommon to see the president taking jabs at CNN and NBC, but this was a rare criticism of Fox News. President Trump appears regularly on the network for interviews and repeatedly praises its hosts and ratings. Fellow journalists were quick to defend their colleagues online. In a series of tweets on January 28, Fox News anchor Julie Banderas blasted the president’s tweets: “Bullying journalists is not Presidential. Period.” Another tweet read, “@realDonaldTrump This is NOT right. I stand by my colleagues @johnrobertsFox and @GillianHTurner They don’t deserve this. No reporter does. They are doing their jobs and reporting the facts.” RSF_en

He was previously imprisoned for seven years in the Chinese capital’s Prison n°2.On leaving prison, Liu told Agence France-Presse (AFP) that he would be deprived of his political and civil liberties for the next four years and that his freedom of expression would be curtailed.Repeating its appeal for Liu to have his political and civil liberties fully restored, Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said, “”We hope that Liu Jingsheng will be allowed to express his opinions freely”.Liu’s release comes ten days before a summit between the European Union and China in the Netherlands. Liu’s name was on a list of Chinese political prisoners whose release was being sought by the EU.He told AFP, “I am an ordinary citizen, I have no ambitions but I am very concerned about the lot of the Chinese people”. In answer to a question about whether he would take part in pro-democratic movements, he replied, “This is not a good time to talk about all these things.”He has stomach problems and high blood pressure. He has reportedly lost almost all his teeth.He was involved in both the Democracy Wall movement in 1979, alongside Wei Jingsheng, and the 1989 Beijing Spring. He constantly campaigned for freedom of expression and Chinese workers’ rights.
