ILIGAN CITY, Mar. 11 (PIA) — To promote gender equality and women empowerment in the workplace, the Department of Public Qorls and Highways (DPWH) Lanao del Norte 2nd District Engineering Office (LN2 DEO) joins the annual celebration of women’s month.
The celebration started with a parade of DPWH officials and district personnel on March 11 around the DPWH compound in Seminary Road, Brgy. Del Carmen, this city.
Female district employees were also treated to a free fasting blood sugar test, foot massage, pedicure, manicure, and haircut.
“We wanted to show our appreciation to our female counterparts. By pampering them during this special occasion and allowing them to feel beautiful both inside and outside, this will boost their self-esteem and improve their job satisfaction. A happy workforce is a productive workforce,” said GAD focal person Rachid Mudag, Jr.
To set the mood for those availing the beauty care services and create a more festive event, DPWH’s in-house band “Busay sa Lanao” was on-hand to provide musical entertainment.
“Let us take this opportunity to salute and thank our wife, mother, grandmothers, friends, and the other strong women who make a difference in our lives every day,” said District Engineering Alykhan Ali.
“I wish to thank all the wonderful women in our DPWH family. You have been a big difference that made our DEO successful”, he further said. (VNL/DPWH-LNED2 PIO)
