Gender and Development (GAD) Activities

To achieve a deeper understanding of roles in the workplace, gender related initiatives were undertaken.

  • Women’s Month Celebration 2020.

The Quirino State University showed support to the Women’s Month Celebration 2020 by displaying this year’s tarpaulin and by encouraging the personnel to observe the Purple Fridays campaign.

A number of employees also attended the Municipal Women’s Month Celebration of Cabarroguis together with the Campus GAD Director, Dr. Emma Aspiras.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic wherein the whole country was placed under Enhanced Community Quarantine from March 16, 2020 to April 30, 2020, the planned Women’s Month Celebration did not push through. However, each personnel were given a GAD t-shirt which should have been the outfit for the Women’s Month Celebration.

  • VAWC Campaign 2020

On December 1, 2020, the Gender and Development Office enjoined each department to pose wearing their VAWC shirts as a sign of support to the 2020 Violence Against Women and Children Campaign.

Moreover, the GAD office also distributed mugs printed with the VAWC Campaign banner to the personnel of the campus.
