Empowering Women: NDC Team celebrates the 2024 National Women’s Month

“The presence of Filipinas in the workforce has had a big impact in the economy. Thanks to their skills, there is considerable industry growth in the country. I believe that development is for all. Men and women should have the same opportunities.” - Maria Clara Ignacio, Chief of TESDA Women's Center

The National Development Company team held a simple kick-off ceremony for this year’s National Women’s Month in a recent town hall meeting.

Planned activities for Gender and Development were laid out, primarily film showing, gender-related seminars, and other planned activities all geared to raise awareness of women’s issues.

Recognizing and valuing the impact of women in the development of our nation forges the path toward more opportunities for gender equality in the workplace, and more.
