Culmination of the 2022 Women’s Month Celebration

Ending the month-long celebration of the National Women’s Month 2022 with its theme “Agenda ng Kababaihan Tungo sa Kaunlaran”, the City Government of Zamboanga through its Gender and Development Section and City Investment Promotion Services successfully conducted its activity entitled “Women Empowerment in Business and Government” held today March 31, 2022 at East Wing – Atrium, KCC Mall de Zamboanga. The activity has gathered around 113 participants (102 Females and 11 Males).
Along with the seminar given by our Resource Persons on how to boost confidence of women in businesses and in government, this activity also featured 20 strong women during its “Fuerza de Mujeres Awards 2022”, of whom have shown their dedication and passion as public servants in the city and as business practitioners.
We would like to pay our big thanks to Mayor Beng Climaco for her immeasurable support to all GAD endeavors and to the Local Council of Women – Zamboanga City Chapter headed by its Interim President, Ma’am Teresa Linda “Tessie” Herrera for their overwhelming commitment and support to this activity.
More so, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the City General Services Office for the Vintas and to the management of KCC Mall de Zamboanga for always accommodating us and for partnering with us in this month of Mujeres.
To all the participants from the CSO Federation headed by Ms Juliet Tigo, all GAD Focal Persons of all departments in the City Government of Zamboanga and to all National Government Agencies’ representatives and GAD Focal who took their extra time to be with us, muchisimas gracias por el suporta!
May we continue to inspire and empower more people especially women and young girls to use their voice to uplift, educate and to empower others.
Happy Women’s Month!
