To further introduce subject matters on Gender and Development (GAD), Regional Conciliation and Mediation Board-Cordillera Administrative Region conducted a three day staff orientation.

Ms. Maggie B. Balagtey, the Branch’s GAD Focal Point, started with the basics of GAD on October 9, 2017.  A video showing on stereotyping and frequently asked questions followed on November 8.  This activity was met with much discourse as everyone shared their own experiences and opinions. 

Gender Mainstreaming and Analysis were roughly discussed on November 13 by Ms. Lyla Jane B. Tacio, the GAD Focal Alternate.  It gave a glimpse on the issuances addressing gender issues and a step by step gender-based analysis.

This Branch initiative were made to at least equalize the level of understanding between and among staff on gender issues.
