Forty eight (48) women participants equally and powerfully mingled with the other twenty-two men during the NCMB Luzon Cluster Team Enhancement Exercises held at Dawal Beach Resort, Zambales on July 5-6, 2018.

NCMB Women Demonstrate their “Woman Power” 2Inspired by the lecture of Deputy Executive Director  Ma. Teresita L. Cancio on “Woman Power”, these women demonstrated their strength, perseverance, passion, adaptability, optimism and confidence. They strongly proved their skills and abilities  in leading their teams despite the tiresome activities. They participated in all the games, win or loss.  Eleanor Roosevelt said, “A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.”

NCMB Women Demonstrate their “Woman Power” 1Not to discount the contribution of men in the empowerment of these women, they played with the women fairly and equally. They treated them as equals, partners and playmates, not competitors.
