El Cielito, Baguio City – To integrate a gender perspective in JHMC’s plans, activities, and programs, a one-day seminar on the basic concept of Gender and Development was conducted last June 8, 2018 at El Cielito Inn, Baguio City.
Present during the seminar were male and female employees of the corporation.
During the event, Ms. Reina P. Olivar, a Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) accredited trainer, facilitated the discussion on the various contexts of gender and development within and outside government offices. This includes the distinction between sex and gender, understanding the changing concept of gender roles, and the use of gender fair language.
