Awareness and Utilization of Gender-Fair Language of Student Leaders in Pangasinan State University
This study was undertaken to determine the level of awareness and the extent of utilization of gender-fair language among student leaders in Pangasinan State University.
Based on the findings, it was revealed that school activities, seminars and social media are effective instruments to promote and implement gender-fair language to the student leaders. In terms in the level of utilization of gender-fair language to the student leaders utilize gender-fair language in thier communication activities such as in writing papers and publications and in deliviring presentations. However, the concerns of student leaders are: information dissemination on the activities, availability of the reading materials, selective participants/attendants in the conducted programs, and the availability of established gender awareness groups and websites. The concerns of the student leaders were justified as they encountered some extent of difficulty in such areas: the use of the pronoun "he" and "man" to represent person, constructing gender-fair writings, preparation of communication letter/s applicable to both men and women and the elimination of gender-bias words in letters.
From the conclusions drawn, it can be inferred that gender sensitivity website or page shall be established inside the Campus, publication of reading materials which shall be made available to all, conduct seminars and training workshops on gender-fair language in the Institution which shall be open to all, official use of gender-fair language in all documents, letters, and printed materials, posting of rules, policies and guidelines in conspicuous places in school premises, conduct activities concerning language like poetry, essay writing and others using gender-fair language, hold gender-fair writing contest, form gender awareness groups in the Institution which will be accessible to all interested people and make a follow-up study that is wider in scope.

Extent of Gender and Development Mainstreaming in Local Government Units: Input to Technological University of the Philippines' Extension Services
The study aimed to determine the extent of gender mainstreaming in the 17 local governement units under the National Capital Region. Descriptive survey method was the research design and purposive sampling was employed to determine the respondents of the study who were members of the Gender and Development Focal Point System and the Technical Working Group.
A researcher made survey/questionnaire, validated and approved by experts in the field and the Gender mainstreaming Evaluation Framework tool from the Philippine Commision on Women were the instruments utilized. A total of 45 respondents represented the 16 cities and 1 municipality of the region.
Based on the findings of the study, it was concluded that civil status was the only variables under Respondents' profile found to be predictor of gender mainstreaming and none from the LGU's profile. Hence, the hypothesis stating that the profile of the LGUs and the members of the GFPS and TWG singly or in combination predict the extent of gender mainstreaming in the local government units is partially sustained.
