As an oversight agency and coordinating body on women’s empowerment and gender equality and as mandated by the Magna Carta of Women (MCW), the PCW leads the implementation of a capacity-building program on gender and development (GAD) to equip national government agencies (NGAs), state universities and colleges (SUCs), government-owned and controlled corporations (GOCCs) and other government instrumentalities as well as local government units (LGUs) with the proper mindset on gender sensitivity, as well as skills on gender-responsive development planning to fulfill their roles and responsibilities under the MCW and other policy issuances and mandates on GAD.
The conduct of GAD Webinars is aligned with the National GAD Resource Program‘s (NGRP) vision to create an accessible, innovative and informative platform to increase awareness and knowledge of policymakers, public officers, and gender trainers on GAD mainstreaming. The GAD Webinar is also PCW’s Technical Assistance (TA) strategy to address the need for direct TA to several requesting agencies. This approach reduces the demand for face-to-face TA given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It also enables the learners to complete the GAD modules within the safety of their homes and offices.
Now in its third year, the PCW GAD Webinar Series will be offered to various government agencies and the general public. We capacitated 6,774 participants from government agencies, 2367 in 2020 (1878 females and 489 males) and 4407 in 2021 (3500 females, 889 males, and 18 unidentified). This year’s GAD Webinar Series hopes to reach more duty-bearers who will avail and complete eight (8) GAD modules from February to November 2022.
The webinar series will also tap the expertise of the PCW GAD Resource Pool members for the delivery of sessions on basic GAD, gender mainstreaming, gender analysis, GAD planning and budgeting, GAD agenda development, and gender-fair communication.
