The passage of Magna Carta of Women (RA 9710) and its subsequent Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) instructed all government agencies, including state universities, colleges and educational/ academic institutions, to mainstream GAD in their policies, people, plans, programs, activities (PPAs), and enabling mechanisms as entry points to make the agencies gender responsive.
More, these agencies must build the capacities of its people, particularly the GAD Focal Point System (GFPS) to lead in gender mainstreaming efforts within the agency. Strategies to mainstream GAD within an organization through capacity building may include the following:
The proposed training program will provide knowledge on basic GAD concepts relevant in mainstreaming gender in research, extension and instruction. It will provide awareness and appreciation on how to be gender sensitive in the workplace and at home.
Duration: Depending on the need of the agency, the training can be packaged into a one gender sensitivity training (GST), two (GST ++), or three days or more training to include GST++, gender analysis for GAD planning and budgeting ( use of Harmonized GAD Guidelines and Gender Mainstreaming Evaluation Framework, and other gender analysis tools relevant for project design and implementation), and in preparing agency GAD plan and budget
