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.
