Topics during the three-day workshop included GAD overview, Gender Analysis, Gender Mainstreaming, and GAD Planning Workshop.

The activity is in pursuant to Section 36 of Republic Act No. 9710, otherwise known as the Magna Carta of Women (MVW), and Section 37-C of its Implementing Rules and Regulation (IRR): “all government agencies and state universities and colleges shall adopt gender mainstreaming as a strategy to promote women’s human rights and eliminate gender discrimination in the systems, structures, policies, programs, processes, and procedures; and shall establish or strengthen their Gender and Development Focal Point System (GFPS) or a similar GAD mechanism to catalyze and accelerate gender mainstreaming within the agency.”

According to BSU GAD Focal Person, Mrs. Frances Noelle G. Escalera, the Capability Building aims to enable and boost the GAD Representatives in performing their roles and responsibilities as GAD advocates and on how to facilitate gender mainstreaming in the University. //Elizabeth T. Calbayan
