ORMOC CITY– The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Leyte 4th District Engineering Office (DEO) joins the annual celebration of Women’s Month with the theme, “WE for Gender Equality and Inclusive Society”.

In line with this, employees follow the “Purple Wednesdays” campaign by wearing purple, a color that symbolizes women empowerment, every Wednesday to show support for women’s rights.

In addition, the DEO also organized a one-hour Zumba exercise activity for its employees every week in partnership with a certified Zumba instructor. This activity promotes physical wellness and camaraderie while also showcasing female employees’ strength and resilience.
To further show their support, snacks were also distributed among female employees after every Zumba activity as a small gesture to acknowledge the contributions of women in the workplace and to show appreciation for their hard work and dedication.

By commemorating this month-long observance, the DEO, which is dedicated to promoting gender equality, seeks to foster a work environment where everyone, regardless of gender, can thrive. (PR)
