The baseline survey was conducted to get a better grasp of the training gaps. There were 180 respondents (101 female and 79 male), who were all journalists from 85 media houses across 28 states. Most of the respondents had between 5 to 15 years of experience in the field.
The results from the baseline survey showed that the initiative is a needed intervention as the ratio of female to male in leadership positions is grossly skewed in favour of the male lot.
The summary result of this was shared with reporters at the training and a fuller version will be published shortly.
