To close the National Women's Month celebration with the sub-theme "Agenda ng Kababaihan, Tungo sa Kaunlaran,", DILG Pampanga held a health and wellness activity followed by a kapehan focused on usapang gender.
Recognizing the importance of maintaining work and life balance considering the daily demands and challenges that come with the job, the Provincial Office organized a fun 30-minute Zumba session with all DILG Pampanga personnel not only to relieve stress and promote physical activity but also to foster social connection.
In her message, PD Myrvi Apostol-Fabia acknowledged the important contributions of the Juanas of Pampanga and their diverse roles in shaping the future of the country.
"Bilang mga babae at DILG officers, tayo ay nabigyan ng pagkakataon na humubog ng ating bayan katuwang ang mga kalalakihan. Kaya naman sana tayo ay manatiling malakas at matatag lalo na't marami pang pagsubok ang ating haharapin. Hindi tayo babae lamang. Babae tayo at mahalaga tayo sa lipunan na ating ginagalawan," said PD Myrvi.
Shortly after, DILG Pampanga personnel gathered at the Kapehan Express lounge for usapang gender. CTL Lydia Baltazar zeroed in on the salient points of the Safe Spaces Act and how the law can protect women and men from sexual harassment in physical and online spaces. The kapehan also opened the floor to powerful and thought-provoking stories of women who have influenced, inspired, and shaped the men and women of DILG Pampanga.
