ISAT U Fostering Gender Sensitivity in the workplace

The office of the President and its different units convened to attend a 3-day training workshop at Damires Hills Resort in Janiuay Iloilo last June 8-10, 2022.

The Gender and Development Office of Iloilo Science and Technology University spearheaded the said training-workshop through its director, Ms. Emily A. Dela Cruz.

A total of 25 participants attended the said training-workshop with the aim to mainstream gender into all operations of the University in order to meet the provisions of RA 9710 otherwise known as the Magna Carta of Women. Series of activities and lectures were given to better understand what the law requires and how as public servants one can contribute to its attainment.

Ms. Dela Cruz gave a lecture on the important of being gender sensitive in dealing with the different stakeholders of the university most especially in identifying terms that are not biased but instead sensitive.

Dr. Raul F. Muyong, the university president handled the team-building part to highlight the 3-day gathering. He gave emphasis on the importance of finding one’s purpose in the different assigned tasks each individual is called to serve. He facilitated different group activities to further engage the participants and enabled them to find their core strength as individuals.

“This team-building activity will gauge how well you know each other and this will also strengthen your   capability as an individual, as public servants serving our university. You may all have different personalities and field of expertise but as one community we are called to serve with outmost integrity and we are called to unite as one ISAT U family.”
