In a drive to enhance the ability of female media practitioners in the country, 21 women journalists have benefitted from a digital journalism and fact-checking training’ delivered by International Visitor Leadership Programme (IVLP) Impact Award Project, organised by Kofoworola Belo-Osagie, an alumna of the IVLP Edward Murrow Programme for Journalists in Lagos.

The three-day training exposed participants to various skills, including media ethics, digital journalism, mobile journalism, video editing, Google tools skills and news verification, among others.

Belo-Osagie, while declaring the training open, said it was aimed at equipping journalists with knowledge and skills of digital journalism practice in the digital era.

She said the choice of women as beneficiaries of the training was owing to discrimination women journalists face in the newsroom. Belo-Osagie said that the National Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ) and various media houses, among others, nominated participants.
