We have 36 female Veterinarians in the central office, which includes the Regional Technical Operations Center (RTOC) NCR and IV-B. We’ve had female Executive Directors before. We can say that the agency and the profession is not male-dominated anymore, and it has been proven that women can lead the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS). However, numbers and designations are not important. What matters is our ability to work together to achieve our goals and enforce our mandate of keeping meat safe.

 

Women should be free to do whatever they want. If they want to work at a government agency, they must be given equal opportunity and fair treatment. I promise that the management ensures this and continues to work on it through various activities carefully planned by our GAD Focal Point System (GFPS).

 

The female workforce can do what males can. Everyone is capable of being a responsible citizen of this country, a nurturing member of a family and community, and a hardworking employee. Women empowerment and gender equality are achieved through inclusion. This is not just the fight of women, nor a fight against each other. This is our chance to eradicate gender discrimination and gender-based violence and harassment so that we can all live harmoniously and perform our duties well.

 

Thank you to everyone who tries to make it possible, especially to my NMIS family. Let us keep working on disregarding our differences and accepting the uniqueness of each other to serve our country.

 

Despite our advances in achieving gender equality in the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS), the management and our GAD Focal Point System (GFPS) continue to provide equal opportunity and fair treatment to women and all genders through carefully planned activities and policies.

 

Women empowerment and gender equality are achieved through inclusion. This is not just the fight of women, nor a fight against each other. This is our chance to eradicate gender discrimination and gender-based violence and harassment so that we can all live harmoniously and perform our duties well. Equality is key to the enforcement of meat safety.

 

Thank you to my NMIS family for trying to make the workplace safe and welcoming to women. Happy Women’s Month!
