Description: 

The Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) established the Sectoral Coordination Division (SCD) as part of the organizational strengthening of the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) thru the Accelerating the Implementation of the Magna Carta of Women for Inclusive Development and Empowerment (AIM WIDE). The SCD is in-charge of managing coordination and provision of technical assistance to sectoral agencies; review of the gender-responsiveness of sectoral policies, plans and PAPs; and conduct of monitoring of sectoral gender mainstreaming efforts.
