GENDER SENSITIVITY TRAINING FOR SSG OFFICERS,
SSG ADVISERS, GAD FOCAL PERSONS AND PRINCIPALS 2021
By: Mrs. Ginalyn M. Allen
A virtual Gender and Sensitivity Training was held last August 11, 2021 via zoom through the initiative of Gems Heart Outreach Devt. Inc, ASMAE Philippines and AFD with partnership to Pasay City South High School.
The Supreme Student Government Officers of Pasay City South High School together with their Advisers, Mrs Ginalyn M. Allen and Mrs. Ma. Fatima A. Roja, Gender and Development Focal person Mrs Salvacion S. Prado and Assistant Principal, Dr. Mark Anthony F. Familaran attended the said event together with the representatives of two other high schools in Pasay, namely Kalayaan National High School and Pasay City East High School.
The very timely Gender Sensitivity Training was facilitated by the Gems Heart’s Ms. Patty. Ms. Lehn of ASMAE served as the Speaker. She taught the officers about the basic concepts and differences of sex and gender and the concepts about the sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). The training also had a pre and post test that determined the learning of their participants. Officers of different school had an active participation and used the chatbox to voiceout their opinions and takeons on the training.
Gems Heart Outreach Devt. Inc was kind enough and gave a communication allowance worth P200 via Gcash to all the partcipants. Such training was part of the study towards a more inclusive model on GBV: Factors and Consequences on the Prevalence of and Risk to Gender-Based Violence among Filipino High School Students.
