Advocacy and Public Service

UP Diliman campus-wide campaigns, celebrations, and partnerships for gender forums, films, educational and interactive theater, and the like comprise our advocacy work for the promotion of women’s empowerment and gender equality and justice.

The UPDGO initiates, catalyzes, participates in, collaborates on, and promotes PAPs that: (1) propagate conversations on gender; (2) respond to timely community and national gender issues; and (3) commemorate in solidarity with national and international celebrations such as One Billion Rising, International Women’s Day and Women’s Month, Pride, International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT), and the 18-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women.

Gender mainstreaming outside of UP Diliman comprises our public service work, where we bring the services we offer to people beyond the UP community. Sharing gender knowledge, skills, and GAD committee work practices with various universities, colleges, government offices, and public and private institutions and organizations helps spread gender sensitivity, responsiveness, and justice in theory and practice.
