MGB 1 joins National Women’s Month 2022

The Mines and Geosciences Bureau Region 1 joins the celebration of the National Women’s Month 2022 with the theme: “We Make Change Work for Women.”

The 2022 National Women’s Month Celebration endeavors to highlight the gains achieved for women and girls, assess actions towards gender equality and look forward to steps that must be taken to ensure progress in empowering women. With the country still reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic, studies and data show that the health crisis stalled movements towards gender equality, worsening inequalities, further exposing gender gaps, and exacerbating vulnerabilities in social and political, and economic aspects.
