Prov’l Council for Women empowers GADGC teachers through paralegal training

The Gender and Development Office conducted a two-day Paralegal Training for GADGRC Teachers, the main objective of which was to provide the participants with practical knowledge on gender-related laws, legislations, and jurisprudence which they could use in dealing with their students who are victims of gender-based violence.

Some 47 GADGRC Teachers from the four campuses participated and completed the training held last March 19-20 at the Sofia Hall of Nature’s Village Resort, Talisay City.

The learning content and activities were facilitated by the three resource speakers led by Atty. Andrea Lizares-Si, chairperson of the Provincial Council for Women (PCW). She was accompanied by Social Welfare Officer IV Richelle Mangga of the Provincial Social Welfare Development Office (PSWDO) and Social Welfare Officer IV Dionela Madrona of the Talisay City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO).

The GADGRC teacher-participants in the paralegal training appreciated the valuable legal inputs as they were led to better understand the gender concepts and emerging issues and concerns they need to learn as teachers to navigate the complexities of the various roles they play in the University.

Given their training and knowledge of the legal frameworks, the GADGRC teachers are now in a better position to help the students, particularly the faculty and the administration, in resolving gender-related disputes within the University setting.

The Gender and Development Team conceptualized and realized the activity to its completion was led by the GAD Director Dr. Elvie S. Samson, JD, and the GAD Campus Coordinators, Dr. Ma. Hanna Grace M. Lopez (Alijis Campus), Dr. Rose F. Regala (Binalbagan Campus) and Dr. Ann Charyl Gallo (Fortune Towne Campus).
