Reporting On Corporate Governance - MENA Media Workshop
“The workshop was a good mix of theoretical and practical and taught us how to ask questions on corporate governance. Before, I thought that CG was bad for companies or at least provided limitations without much benefit. But now I learned how beneficial CG is to companies,” says Hala Al Hadidi from Jordan’s state news agency PETRA.
The media training workshop took place in Jordan on May 3-4, 2010 and was co-organized by the Global Corporate Governance Forum, Thomson Reuters Foundation and IFC Advisory Services in Middle East & North Africa (MENA). The workshop was held under the patronage of the Jordanian Minister of Media and Communication H.E. Dr. Nabil Al Sharif.
The workshop is part of the Media Training Program on Corporate Governance Reporting to build journalists' capacity to cover issues related to corporate governance. Based on the view that “better companies make better societies,” the overall objective is to draw on journalists’ unique ability to disseminate information on corporate governance to the business community and to the wider reading public, and to make readers aware of company activities that can have significant impact on society.
