WOMEN CAN MAKE CHANGE. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region 2 held the synchronized culminating activity of National Women’s Month.
In his message, Assistant Regional Executive Director Ismael Manaligod underscored the capabilities of women as contributing factor to change and development. “Let us not limit our thinking, that if you are a woman employee, you can only go this far and you can only do this task. And for men, we should be sensitive on these gender roles and promote equality in our respective work environment,” the management services director said.
He also reminded that both men and women are equal in terms of capability and competence. The culminating activity was highlighted with the film viewing of the employees’ performance of the One Billion Rising Dance, the biggest mass action to end violence against women.The installation of Values Restoration Officers from the regional and field offices was also conducted in adherence with Civil Service Commission Announcement No. 40 s. 2017, and in partnership with the Council for the Restoration of Filipino Values.
