In Kenya, the fourth edition of the Female Journalists Mentorship Programme was launched on 8 May, bringing together a fresh cohort of journalism and mass communication students from five local universities. Pamela Makotsi-Sittoni, Executive Editor of the Daily Nation at the Nation Media Group, says unequal representation of women in the media has been a prevailing status quo that can only be changed by such mentorship programmes. Ms Makotsi-Sittoni decried the inequality in the media industry, noting that many young women pursue journalism courses in college but fall off shortly after joining the industry. She advised the mentees to take advantage of the mentorship programme and remain true to themselves.
