This ESF funded project sought, by examining a particular sector in depth, to improve understanding of best practice in implementing active gender equality policies from the perspective both of companies and the women they employ. Overall the project aimed to contribute towards raising awareness of the benefits of removing gender constraints in the workplace, in employment, career progression, training and income generating opportunities in the communication and media industries. The following summary describes the results of the first year of the project which was carried out in 2004.
