Abstract

The main objective of this research is to advocate gender awareness and sensitivity in the school.  Specifically, it sought to measure the level of gender sensitivity among the employees of the Abra State Institute of Sciences and Technology.  The descriptive method of investigation was used to describe the teachers’ and non-teaching personnel’s level of gender sensitivity.  The researchers sought permission from the head of the institution to conduct the proposed study, meet the respondents and distribute the checklist and questionnaires to them. Responses were retrieved, tallied, analyzed, and interpreted.  In conclusion, the level of gender sensitivity of the employees of ASIST is high. Among the three roles, community managing role was rated the highest followed by reproductive and productive roles.  There is a significant difference between the gender sensitivity level of ASIST Bangued faculty and non-teaching personnel in terms of productive role.  The non-teaching personnel have higher level of perception on gender sensitivity along productive role than the faculty members.  However, there is no significant difference between the gender sensitivity level of the faculty and non-teaching personnel in terms of reproductive and community managing roles.  It is then recommended that there should be more orientations, seminars and trainings to be attended by the ASIST employees to further strengthen their gender sensitivity levels. The Gender and Development Unit must come up with more GAD programs and projects that will encourage participation among the employees. A parallel study should be conducted by considering other variables or respondents not included in this study.
