Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines (HGDG) Seminar

RATIONALE

One of the PCW approved and endorsed GAD activity of PEZA for 2018 is the conduct of the training/seminar for HGDG to be utilized as a tool in Gender Analysis and in the preparation of the PEZA GAD Plans and Budget/Accomplishment Reports.

One of the pillars of gender mainstreaming in an organization are the people, most especially the GAD Focal Point System (GFPS). Since the GFPS are expected to lead the agency in gender mainstreaming, capacity development strategies such as regular conduct of trainings are needed.

PEZA conducted several trainings on gender analysis and the Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines for its GFPS. However, since gender mainstreaming requires an agency effort, there is also a need to capacitate non-GFPS technical staff on gender analysis in order for them to identify and address gender issues in their line of work.

SESSION OBJECTIVES

1. To raise the awareness of the participants on the value of gender mainstreaming and gender analysis;
2. To orient the participants on the gender analysis frameworks and tools;
3. To capacitate the participants on the use of the Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines

The Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines (HGDG) Seminar was conducted last May 18, 2018 at the Cavite Economic Zone.
