PILI, Camarines Sur- March of every year, among other observances, has been dedicated to women with varied activities throughout the month in celebration of the incredible achievements and contributions of women throughout history.

March 08, to be specific, was declared in 1990 as National Women’s Day by virtue of RA 6949 s. 1990, as signed by former President  Aquino on April 10, 1990.

Thus, in observance of the 2024 National Women’s Month Celebration with the theme, “WE for Gender Equality and Inclusive Society”, the ATI Bicol conducted an activity entitled “Ginhawang Bigay Para sa mga Juan at Juanang Kapugay-Pugay ng ATI” at Isarog Hall, ATI-RTC V, Diversion Road, San Agustin, Pili, Camarines Sur on March 25, 2024.

This one-day activity aims to energize, empower, and equip the ATI staff with knowledge and motivation to prioritize their physical well-being. Seventy (70) ATI Bicol staff attended the activity and participated in several activities promoting the overall well-being of employees and enhancing their productivity.

ATI Bicol Center Director Elsa A. Parot conferred the significance of conducting this kind of activity to relieve the staff from stress from work, to improve physical and mental health and to boost the employees’ productivity at work. In addition, selected ATI staff shared their personal stories and experiences of overcoming obstacles that serve as an inspiration and motivation for others, allowing others to reflect, gain new insights, and learn from others’ perspectives.

Indeed, women should be celebrated every day, but a month dedicated to female empowerment is extremely special. It doesn’t just honor the iconic women who have changed the history, but also encourages new generations to dream big and know that anything is possible. It is also an opportunity to reflect on the progress we have made towards gender equality and to acknowledge the work that still lies ahead.
