PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS, the Regional Director of NCRPO supports gender equality and took pride in the conduct of 2-Day Online Gender And Development (GAD) and Gender Sensitivity Training (GST) Webinar which started on August 12, 2020 and ended yesterday, August 13, 2020 at RTOIC Building, Camp Bagong Diwa, Bicutan, Taguig City.
The webinar is a virtual learning seminar in line with the new normal system that uses internet. In this manner, attendees will have to stay at their convenient places and listen online without prejudicing the health of their families. Nevertheless, lecturers of the webinar assured interaction by allowing queries to be raised, just like the traditional classroom set up.
The Gender And Development (GAD) and Gender Sensitivity Training (GST) Webinar aim to better understand laws that are in place to protect women and recognize their importance in the society.
Among the lectures included were: Institutions that Influence Gender Roles, Manifestation of Gender Bias; and The Importance of Integrating Efforts to prevent Violence Against Women and their Children (VAWC) Cases (RA9262) that are necessary in the current conditions that discriminate them and threaten their safety and well-being.
PMGEN SINAS encouraged all NCRPO women personnel to be agents of change “In the face of a male dominated profession, I am proud that our women in the service serve as contributors to the developments and innovations of NCRPO. Know your worth, know the laws that protect you and be ready to serve and protect the women in our community,” he said.
