The UP Diliman Gender Office would like to invite all GAD COMMITTEE MEMBERS to participate in the 13th UP Diliman Gender and Development (GAD) Summit 2022 and the 3rd UP Diliman Professional Development Training Series 2022: Gender-Based Violence First Responder Training this November 23-25, 2022 as part of UPDGO’s opening activities for the 18-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women, which begins on November 25 – the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (IDEVAW). These are both in-person activities to be held at Alcantara Hall (third floor), UP Student Union Building, University of the Philippines Diliman.
The 3rd UP Diliman Professional Development Training Series 2022: Gender-Based Violence First Responder Training is a three-day training seminar to be held on November 23-24, 2022 from 8:00AM to 5:00PM and on November 25, 2022 from 8:00AM to 12:00NN. The PDTS will be focused on Training for UP Diliman GAD Committee members as Counseling First Responders for Gender-Based Violence. This training is the direct result of previous GAD Agenda and GAD Summit roundtable discussions on the need for Training as Counseling First Responders for Gender-Based Violence following concerns regarding several incidences of requests and situations where GAD Committee members have had to respond and assist in this capacity.
The PDTS shall be followed by the 13th UP Diliman Gender and Development Summit 2022 to be held on November 25, 2022 from 1:00PM to 5:00PM. This will be the first in-person GAD Summit to be held since 2019, and will include GAD Committee fellowship, presentation of GAD accomplishments, and sharing of best practices in GAD of all units and colleges across UP Diliman.
