‘Nakikiisa ang buong Komisyon sa Serbisyo Sibil sa pagpupugay sa mga kababaihan sa pamahalaan na nagpapamalas ng kanilang natatanging kakayanan upang mataguyod nang husto ang serbisyo publiko,’ the commission stated. (The CSC expresses its sympathy with the women in government who have demonstrated exceptional qualities to completely advance public service by recognizing them with the phrase “Napakahalaga ng kanilang ginagampanang tungkulin sa iba’t-ibang larangan”). Their contributions across a variety of sectors are crucial),” CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles stated in a statement.

Dr. Zenith Gaye Orozco-Bautista, an assistant professor from the Institute of Biology of the University of the Philippines Diliman, opened the CSC’s internal NWM celebration.

Orozco-Bautista, a recipient of the Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST) Balik Scientist Program, told her experience of how, despite men predominating in her area, her power and tenacity allowed her to thrive.

In addition, CSC officials and staff members mentioned significant women in their lives who serve as role models for them and motivate them to be good public servants.

In the meantime, CSC Commissioner Ryan Alvin Acosta urged the CSC staff to consider their role in empowering women.

“With this month’s celebration, we have an excellent opportunity to evaluate how much we have helped to the cause of advancing the rights of women in our life, whether they be our relatives, coworkers, or classmates. Next, we consider further what else we can do to advance the status of women, keeping in mind that all of our efforts, no matter how tiny, are still very important, stated Acosta in his speech.

The CSC, he continued, “has taken this issue to heart by ensuring that our programs and policies give women meaningful participation and representation in decision-making and by fostering their personal well-being.

Other internal NWM events planned for the month include the “Amazing Run,” in which female CSC officials and staff members will compete to demonstrate their physical and mental prowess.

The CSC will also offer continuing education on Gender and Development (GAD)-related subjects including juggling a job with motherhood, women and technology, and single parenting.

A resource speaker will highlight sections of the Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act, the Safe Spaces Act, and CSC Regulations on Sexual Harassment during the CSC’s “Piknik sa Kalikasan,” which will conclude the NWM celebration.

In the aforementioned occasion, current and former female CSC officials will also be honored.

Women’s Policies

The CSC has created and implemented numerous human resource policies and programs that promote female employees in government as a fervent supporters of women’s empowerment and gender mainstreaming in the Filipino bureaucracy.

Guidelines for extended maternity leave, paternity leave, adoption leave, and leave for women who have been the victims of violence are among them.

In accordance with Republic Act 9710, often known as the Magna Carta of Women, the CSC also published regulations on the granting of exceptional leave benefits for women who underwent surgery for gynecological disorders (MCW).

The Equal Opportunity Principle (EOP) and the 2017 Omnibus Regulations on Appointments and Other Human Resource Actions (ORAOHRA), as amended, are two further measures taken by the Commission to ensure inclusive human resource practices.

In the fields of recruiting, selection, appointment, promotion, and other HR operations, ORAOHRA ensures not only the proper process but also the fair and equal treatment of persons.

EOP, on the other hand, aims to eliminate obstacles and discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression (SOGIE), civil status, disability, religion, ethnicity, or political affiliation during the selection process, participation in, or access to learning and development interventions.

To prevent sexual harassment cases from occurring in government, it has also tightened sections of the 2017 Regulations on Administrative Matters in the Civil Service, particularly those relevant to the crime of sexual harassment.

With its annual Search for Exceptional Government Employees program, the CSC has been constantly recognizing women in the government who work in a variety of sectors.
