It is that time of the year again wherein Gender and Development seminars are being held in schools divisions and districts.
The Schools Division Office of Pampanga already released the Division Memorandum No. 179, s. 2019, which is about the preparation of the 2019 annual Gender and Development (GAD) Plan and budget and request for GAD activities.
For most of us, GAD seminars are all about outings, having fun, and going to places. But that is only a part of it. Philippine Commission on Women defined Gender and Development as the development perspective and process that is participatory and empowering, equitable, sustainable, free from violence, respectful of human rights, supportive of self-determination and actualization of human potentials. It is about the department’s attempt to have a working environment which have a caring, respectful atmosphere to all genders.
When the environment where you work considers your strengths, weaknesses, and appropriate roles in the organization, your effectivity in work will bounce back to it and it will be reflected as a success of the whole organization.
