The PSU Office for Women, Gender and Development (OWGD) through its Director Dr. Mary Allyson Carlos participated in the “Orientation Seminar for GAD Focal Point Persons.” The seminar was held on August 6-8, 2014 at the CHED Auditorium, University of the Philippines Diliman Campus, Quezon City.

According to Dr. Carlos, the seminar was essential in ensuring that the Gender and Development advocacy is well-implemented throughout government institutions, including state universities and colleges, with PSU being one such example.

In addition, Dr. Carlos noted that the OWGD is in the process of raising awareness for the implementation of the Palawan State University’s rules and policies implementing Republic Act 7877, or the Anti-Sexual Harassment Act, and PSU rules and policies implementing Republic Act 9262, ot the Violence Against Women and Children Act.
