THE Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), through its Gender and Development (GAD) Focal Point System (GADFPS), held a workshop to improve the agency leaders’ understanding of GAD policies and mandates and develop its practices in handling gender-related cases.

Held in Jet Hotel in Lipa, Batangas, from November 29 until December 1, 2023, the workshop was a three-in-one event involving a Committee on Decorum and Investigation (CODI) Orientation, Gender and Sensitivity Training (GST), and a GAD Policy Formulation Workshop.

The main objective of the event was to formulate the agency’s policies on CODI, plan the budget of GAD, as well as develop CAAP’s Mapagkalingang Paliparang Program.

Also coinciding with the three programmed activities was a visit to the Basilio Fernando Air Base in Lipa, where the Philippine Air Force’s (PAF) Air Education, Training, and Doctrine Command (AETDC) held a GAD Briefing to CAAP GADFPS.

The GADFPS is composed of the CAAP’s top management, including the agency’s area center managers.
