GUIMBA, Nueva Ecija – The Interim Division Office (IDO) 6 of the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) Upper Pampanga River Integrated Irrigation Systems (UPRIIS) marked the celebration of International Women’s Day with a series of activities that included a “wellness treat” for all their female and “female-at-heart” employees here.

NIA-UPRIIS IDO 6 head Engr. Jose Ariel G. Domingo said highlights of the celebration also included serenading while offering red roses to each of them during the event that was held at the Stefie’s Garden Resort on March 8.

Domingo said it was one way of showing the agency’s appreciation for the significant contributions of women to the organization and to society in line with this year’s theme, “WE for Gender Equality and Inclusive Society.”

He said his office fully supports this year’s National Women’s Month celebration, stressing the importance of promoting gender equality and inclusivity in the workplace.

Domingo said they also organized a Zumba dance activity to promote physical fitness and give the female participants and their male counterparts bonding time with each other.
