PCIC Holds Gender Mainstreaming, Public Ethics and Accountability for Employees

Transparency, scrutiny and a public demand for truth are the factors in obtaining real public accountability.

This was part of the message of Dr. Aldrin Antivola, as he discussed ethics and accountability during the two-day Seminar on Gender Mainstreaming & Public Ethics and Accountability for employees of the PCIC.

“Judging important matters, such as ethics, on the surface is no basis for proper judgement,” Dr. Antivola said. “Moreover, we make it very easy for those who seek to deceive and exploit us when we fail to question and examine things properly before deciding.”

In addition, Gender and Development (GAD) concepts were discussed, as well as international and national policy imperatives of gender mainstreaming. These were explained by Ms. Genesis Giselle Baseleres, a University Research Associate from the University of the Philippines Los Baños.

 “The seminar has given us new insights on gender and development, ethics and accountability,” PCIC Vice President for Support and Services Group Segundo Guerrero said. “This is part of our effort to promote honest, transparent and efficient service to our clients and   uphold integrity and good behavior among employees.”    

Further, Officer-In-Charge of the Actuarial Research and Product Valuation Department Renato Viado discussed some operational matters with the employees and gave them the necessary direction in carrying out the plans and programs for 2019.

The said seminar was held on December 3 – 4, 2018 in Tanza, Cavite with nearly 500 employees from the head office and regional offices in attendance.
