The Office on Women Gender and Development continues to execute its plans in line with this month’s celebration of International Women’s Month.
On Friday, they have responded to a request given by the College of Teacher Education to have a training on gender sensitivity for their graduating students.
Dr. Mary Allyson Carlos, Director of the PSU OWGAD was one of the keynote speakers in the said event. She gave a number of talks that provided information on women empowerment and other relevant issues such as sexual harassment in the workplace.
It can be noted that teaching as a profession, is predominantly populated by women. With this, the OWGAD sees the importance of educating future teachers on women’s rights. It is also logical that since the participants will be educators in their own right in the future, they also naturally expected to be instruments in spreading an awareness about women’s rights which is expected to benefit future generations of Filipinos. In PSU’s 50th Year Celebration this year, women empowerment and gender sensitivity are some of the things that the school is aiming to promote.
The OWGAD warmly opens its doors to other units within the school which want trainings which are similar to the one just held for the CTE. This is all a part of President Jeter S. Sespene and the rest of the PSU Administation’s drive to make the community more aware of women empowerment and gender sensitivity.
