Women's Studies Department Chair at CHED Regional Summit
The Commission on Higher Education Regional Office (CHED RO) VI organized the regional summit on Gender and Development last May 24-25, 2012 held at the Western Visayas State University, Iloilo City. The two-day conference was attended by gender focal persons both from State Universities and Colleges as well as Higher Education Institutions from Region VI.
Dr. Carmelita Usog, Chair of St. Scholastica's College (SSC) Women's Studies Department was invited to talk on the "Role of Education in Gender Construction". She likewise shared about gender mainstreaming in SSC and activities being done to ensure a climate where gender fair education thrives. Her parting words to the participants were: "Gender Fair Education is both a task and a challenge....it demands commitment and sharpening the school's advocacy to be able to participate in the reconstruction of a more egalitarian community/society". Her words stirred the participant to take on the gender lens be it in the classroom or in their own homes.
