The City Government of Malaybalay through the City Human Resource Management Office (CHRMO) conducted the Gender and Development and Gender Sensitivity training on October 19, 2022 at Barangay Zamboanguita, and October 26, 2022 at Roberto’s Place, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.

The participants of the said activity were the City Government of Malaybalay employees as well as the City paid job order employees of Barangay Zamboanguita.

The Gender and Development (GAD) Program of the government aims to redefine the traditional concept and expectations of the roles of men and women in the society.

GAD is also geared to create equality of both genders in making use of the opportunities and exercising responsibilities in the society.

Ms. Shaunell Mary J. Sayson and Mr. Red Robin P. Babanto GAD coordinators from Bukidnon State University gave the lectures and group activity.

This activity was a success because the speakers were able to clearly define the identities of both genders in GAD perspectives.
