To strengthen the mechanisms of the GAD advocates, a Gender and Development Trainors Training Workshop was held at Hotel Kimberly, Tagaytay City on May 9-11, 2012. The workshop trainors were Mr. Cris Anthony Gonzales and Ms. Emma Rose Quesada-Medina from PETA and Hon. Remedios Rikken from PCW. The said seminars were through the initiative of Dr. Florida C. Labuguen and Dr. Helen D. Caparas, University GAD Focal Person and University GAD Coordinator, respectively. Furthermore, the training workshop was participated in by different GAD trainors from the Philippine State College of Aeronautics (PHILSCA) campuses and TUP system.

The above-mentioned trainings were conceptualized to let the trainors internalize the context of GAD and equip them with technical training skills for gender mainstreaming in order to become effective GAD trainors and advocates.
