DPWH Ilocos Sur 1st District Engineering Office joins the celebration of the 2018 National Women’s Month with this year’s theme “We Make Change Work For Women”. It highlights the empowerment of women as active contributors to and claimholders of development. From the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW), the theme emphasizes that women should be active performers in bringing about positive changes and that they should reap from the results of these development. This can be made possible by empowering women – enabling them to meaningfully engage with other development stakeholders, and to fully implement the Magna Carta for Women.
The district supports the said celebration to raise awareness on gender issues and promote gender equalities among personnel of this agency. And for the whole month of March, the “All Women Cast Lupang Hinirang” will be played and brochures of the Magna Carta of Women will be distributed.
