While De Dios cited the gains in Gender and Development (GAD), she also appealed for the CSC to be aware and responsive of other areas of concern such as peace and conflict. “It is important to also recognize the role of our women in responding to conflict and the peace process, especially at this critical time in Mindanao,” she added. De Dios also thanked Filipino men for their valuable contribution in upholding women’s rights.
CSC Commissioner Robert S. Martinez, in his speech, agreed with the importance of men’s role in gender advocacy. He also expressed his pride in the CSC for creating a discrimination-free work environment. He also cited that 70% of the CSC’s work force nationwide are women, although the ratio of men and women differs in the second level managerial/executive positions and in supervising/ Division Chief positions.
