Pursuant to Proclamation No. 227 s. 1988 signed on March 17, 1988, the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) leads the annual National Women’s Month celebration (NWMC).

In 2017, the PCW Board Members and Inter-Agency Technical Working Group identified the NWMC theme “We Make Change Work for Women”, which shall be used from 2017-2022. It highlights the empowerment of women as active contributors to and claimholders of development. This pursuit of development under the new administration is also anchored on the commitment of “Malasakit at Pagbabago” or True Compassion and Real Change.

One of the key activities during last year’s celebration is a forum entitled “WE MAKE CHANGE WORK: WOMEN INSPIRING WOMEN”. Modeled after TEDx format, this forum aims to celebrate women’s journey and share inspiring stories of change in their chosen fields to encourage their fellow women to be empowered change agents.  This 2018, the PCW is holding another set of the forum to provide a platform for women to inspire and appreciate each other and create an environment supportive of each other. Target participants are local government units, non-government and people’s organizations, private sector, and students.

• March 8, 2018 – Metro Manila (Luzon)
• March 15, 2018 – Aklan (Visayas)
• March 22, 2018 – Davao City (Mindanao)

To fully engage the audience, the PCW needs to hire a resource person-performer for the Visayas leg of the forum.
