Roman Romulo among others still confirming their presence will be at WOMENVOTE Part 2, on March 17 at 2 pm at the Dusit Hotel.
The Women’s Business Council of the Philippines (WOMENBIZPh) is behind this voter education series which was conceived to check who of the candidates were aware about Gender Diversity, Women Empowerment issues and the like.
“We enjoin the government Gender and Development(GAD) people to listen” says Boots Garcia, Chair of the powerful women organization. But not just for GAD people, the forum seeks to inform the general public about how women issues are addressed by senators and congressmen.
“We in the private sector need to know who of our candidates will support our advocacies some of which need to be legislated already,” says Chit Juan, President of WomenbizPH and serial entrepreneur heading the ECHOstore and the International Women’s Coffee Alliance-PH chapter.
The forum will have popular broadcaster Ces OrenaDrilon as moderator as Ces also volunteered to do this as her voter education advocacy.
