Myanmar Red Cross Society (MRCS) has been working to ensure gender and diversity (G&D) is mainstreamed and fully integrated within their programming, plans, policies, tools, branch and volunteer development. Efforts have been made to systematically integrate gender and diversity into its emergency programming and longer term planning.
A gender and diversity policy awareness training was conducted in Bago City on 26 June and in Pyi City on 3 July 2018. The event was participated by MRCS programmatic leads where they learned about the Gender and diversity Policy and cross-cutting issue that link with the 2016-2020 strategy. The participants also discussed how they can integrate G&D into their respective activities and program through seven fundamental principles. A total of 117 people (19 females) attended the training.
