GAD Webinar


One of the National Gender and Resource Program (NGRP) visions is to create an accessible, innovative, and informative platform to increase the awareness and knowledge of policymakers, public officers, gender trainers, and even the public in gender mainstreaming.


The rapid advances in information and communication technology (ICT) provided many opportunities for instant access to information. Everything is now going digital and can be easily reached by our fingertips. ICT has dramatically influenced the shift of traditional learning forms to different types such as mobile, electronic, and digital learning.


Creating an online GAD technical assistance platform reduces the demand for face-to-face technical assistance given the current pandemic. It will also enable the learners to complete the modules at their own pace.


Meanwhile, the GAD webinars will also benefit the individuals, specifically the members of the GFPS of government agencies, as they can learn gender mainstreaming in their own time and pace. Moreover, GAD webinars are location flexible, allowing the learners to access the platform anytime and anywhere. It is also more efficient in sharing updates on the latest GAD policies and other HAD-related information among GAD practitioners and GAD Resource Pool.


Webopedia1 defines a webinar as a presentation, lecture, workshop, or seminar transmitted over the Web using video conferencing software. The Webinar should have the ability to give, receive and discuss information in real-time.
