DepEd launches flagship Gender Equality program in CL

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — The Department of Education (DepEd) recently launched the Gender Equality Movements in Schools of Central Luzon (GEMS-CL) in a bid to revitalize efforts on Gender and Development (GAD).

“This project seeks to align with the mandate of the Department to provide students with gender responsive learning environment and various opportunities to understand gender roles and eliminate gender inequalities,” DepEd Assistant Regional Director Nicolas Capulong said.

GEMS-CL includes year-round activities, which kicked off during the in-house capacity building for the Regional and Division Gender and Development Focal Point Systems and other staff of the regional office.

Capulong underscored the need to revisit the GAD plans and make sure that all plans must be focused more on the clients- the learners of Central Luzon.

“The development of teacher training manual/modules, the third phase of the activity, aims to provide all 20 Schools Division Offices readily available materials in training principals and teachers to make learning- in all aspects gender responsive,” the official furthered.

The proposed manual will include five modules, which are all focused in gender equality in education.

Topics include Gender Equality–Conceptual and Normative Framework, Gender Mainstreaming in Education-Gender Analysis in Education, Gender Responsive Budgeting in DepEd and Gender Impact Assessment, Gender Responsive Networking- Involving stakeholders in designing and implementing Gender Equality, Advocating for Gender Equality and Mobilizing resources for promoting Gender Equality, and Monitoring and Evaluation- Quality issues in promoting GAD and gender equality.
