Women’s Month Online Discussion Labs
Bicol University (BU) sees itself as an institution that produces leaders and change agents for social transformation and development. In this vision, women hold a special place. The Gender and Development (GAD) office is tasked to develop and implement plans, programs, and activities that will advance gender equality in the University. The Women’s Month celebrations – as a commemoration of the achievements of women as changemakers – is one of its main thrusts.
To celebrate women’s month, BU wished to create an online workshop with noteworthy female speakers in the sports realm. By doing so, it also hoped to address the needs and interests of the university.
BU partnered with Adrenaline Solutions (AS) to create online discussion labs to address the key areas: Fitness and Physical Education, Gender and Development, Research Writing, and Sports, Fitness, and Entrepreneurship. AS found four sportswomen to talk about them: Climber Janet Belarmino Forney, Footballer Kathleen Rodriguez, IOC Young Leader Adriana Escobar, and Coach Deborah Spink.
The online discussion labs deeply affected the participants. The stories made the women who joined realize that nothing is really impossible and it’s important to take on the challenges that they face.
