JESSICA NAZARETH-LUCERO or “Jeng” as she is fondly called, is a homegrown empowered woman of MGB-IX.

A Geologist by profession, Ms. Lucero immediately began her career in the government service right after she graduated from Adamson University as an MGB Scholar in 1984. She rose from the ranks having started as a casual employee before holding her present position as Chief Geologist of the Geosciences Division (GSD) in 2005. As a recipient of a 9-month Netherlands Fellowship Programme, she earned her post-graduate course Diploma in Exploration Geophysics at the International Institute for Aerospace Survey and Earth Sciences in Delft, the Netherlands in 1998.

Members of the Regional Gender and Development Technical Working Group (RGAD-TWG) of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau-IX (MGB IX) as represented by Information Officer/RGAD-TWG Alternate Ms. Emma Deverala and Geologic Aide Maria Jessica B. Avecilla, participated in the zoom webinar hosted by the  Gender and Development Section, in collaboration with the Public Information Division of the Office City Mayor of Zamboanga on September 24, 2021.

With the theme "Women in Media on GAD Perspective", this webinar aimed to bring local media practitioners in one common goal in addressing their perceptions of gender in the media, recalibrate their practice so they do not perpetuate gender discrimination and consciously produce media content that will bring women’s issues to the core of national consciousness.

Topics discussed during the one-day activity include: GAD and its legal mandates, Women in the Frontline, GAD Basic Concepts, SOGIES, Gender-Fair Language and Comprehensive Anti-Discrimination Ordinance and Women and Media.
