As part of its Gender and Development (GAD) Program, the Bureau of Labor Relations organized a seminar-workshop on Gender Sensitivity and Responsive Governance for the BLR employees on June 18, 2015 at the BLR Conference Room.

The activity aimed at enhancing the level of awareness of BLR staff on gender and development issues and concerns. It was conducted to emphasize the importance of moral and behavioral responsibility in the workplace, and to formulate gender and development plan towards gender-responsive governance.

Ms. Analie B. Apostol, Special Investigator IV of the Civil Service Commission, facilitated the activity through discussion and workshop on addressing gender-related issues in the workplace or the community. “Nowadays, we should uphold gender parity by maintaining respect, being more sensitive and recognizing the potential of any individual regardless of his or her gender,” Ms. Apostol said.

The activity featured workshops that required the participants to identify the characteristics, roles and problems of men and women.

BLR staff expressed gratitude to the resource person for sharing her knowledge on gender and development.
