Dahino urges City Hall women employees to strive for excellence

“Illiterate nowadays are no longer those who cannot read and write but those who cannot learn, re-learn and unlearn. So women, in this modern world, dili pwede nga we keep on doing what we’ve been doing, we have to transform ourselves. Choose to challenge (yourselves) and have a new model of reality.”

This was pointed out by Councilor Edna M. Dahino, chairman of the committee on women and family relations, yesterday at the virtual flag raising ceremony attended by the officers and employees of the city government.

In celebration of Women's Month still with the theme “Making Change Work for Women”, Dahino stressed the importance of the word ‘change’ as not just a word but is something that will transform one’s perspective especially for women in public service.

Striving for excellence should be regarded as a habit and not just an act and adapting changes for the better shall be celebrated every month and not just once a year. It should be consistent so as to avoid committing the same old habits, she further pointed out.

The councilor also encouraged women to get out of their comfort zones. They should also determine and increase their standards by creating an exciting picture in mind to deter some limiting beliefs and strategies, she added.

Women should also learn to capture the best ideas from other successful people and learn from them as well, Councilor Dahino said.

“Congratulations to all of us women, who chose to commit to help, do it as we only pass through this life but once,” Dahino pointed out.
