Taking advantage of information and communication technology (ICT) to reach as many learning participants as possible through mobile, electronic, and digital learning modes, the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) launched its series of gender and development (GAD) Webinars as part of its provision of appropriate and strategic technical assistance to stakeholders.
The GAD Webinar Series is implemented under Component 3: GAD Technical Assistance Platform of the National GAD Resource Program, which envisions to create an accessible, innovative and informative platform to raise awareness and increase knowledge of policymakers, public servants, gender and development trainers and the general public on GAD by offering a series of GAD webinars. The PCW GAD Webinar Series enables training participants to complete the GAD modules at their own pace and reduces the demand for face-to-face or direct GAD technical assistance during the occurrence of pandemics.
PCW started offering GAD Webinars in 2020, which incorporate basic GAD training such as GAD and SOGIESC, gender analysis, GAD agenda, GAD Planning and Budgeting, and special topics like gender-fair communication. For the period 2020-2022, the GAD Webinars are able to train a total of 12,636 participants (9899 female, 2719 males, and 18 not identified). The breakdown is as follows:
