BSU conducts training on PAP proposal preparation with gender perspective

With the aim to enhance the capabilities of BSU officials and staff in preparing gender-responsive Proposals, Activities and Project briefs (PAPs)for the University, a training-workshop on Integrating Gender Perspective in Project Development and Management and Completed Staff Work was conducted on February 28, March 1 & 11, 2019 at the CAS Little Theatre and Strawberry Hall, Benguet State University.

It included series of lectures and workshops on completed staff work and project proposal development. The topics discussed were The Imperatives of Gender Mainstreaming, Project Development and Management, Completed Staff Work, Overview of Gender and Development Plan and Budget and Integrating Gender Perspective in Project Development & Management.

Completed staff work was discussed to guide participants in preparing PAP proposals prior to submission to the management for final review and approval.

During the third day, participants presented several PAP proposals integrating gender issues. These were reviewed by POSTPhil Executive Director Dr. Ferdinand P. Gonzales, and BSU GAD Director Frances Noelle G. Escalera. Both are PCW-National GAD Resource Pool Members.

Gonzales and Escalera were impressed and commended the participants for preparing very good project proposals.

“The quality of the proposal is worth reading…I am happy and contented with the output despite limited time”, Gonzales said. In his closing remarks, GAD TWG member Richard Kinnud, stressed that project development and completed staff work are very good topics that were discussed in the activity. He added that it gave the participants an idea that in proposing something for the good of the University, the processes discussed especially how to possess the gender lens should be applied.//EMBawayan, photos by Jafet Balbawang and Chamanei Elias, BSU-BSDC interns
