The UP Diliman Gender Office is part of the Study Group on SOGIESC Provisions in the University of the Philippines Gender Policies, a research committee comprised of constituent unit representatives from the UP System Gender and Development Committee and led by the UP Center for Women’s and Gender Studies. The Study Group was formed to document reported and unreported cases of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC), which will be used as evidence towards integrating SOGIESC-related provisions into the gender-related policies in the University, as embodied in the Guidelines on Promoting Empowerment and Gender Equality in the University of the Philippines (also known as the UP Gender Guidelines) and the University of the Philippines Anti-Sexual Harassment Code (UP ASH Code).
Following are the Research Objectives as formulated by the Study Group:
1. To document cases of discrimination on the basis of SOGIESC reported to the gender offices and offices of anti-sexual harassment of the University of the Philippines constituent units and the offices’ responses to these cases
2. To surface incidents of discrimination on the basis of SOGIESC that were not reported to any UP Gender Offices or offices of anti-sexual harassment
3. To recommend vital SOGIESC-related provisions for integration into the UP Gender Guidelines and ASH Code
