Notables at AIM with Congresswoman Geraldine Roman on Equality: Is it achievable?

Honorable Congresswoman Geraldine Roman of 1st District of Bataan
Congresswoman Roman is the first featured speaker of  Notables at AIM kicks-off last November 28, 2019, at Fuller Hall. AIM, Makati City. 

Equality is a BIG word in our society.  I did some reading and found something interesting about it.  As per Merriam Webster online, Equality defines as the quality or state of being equal. Yours truly transcribe and have an understanding that and refers to having the same amount or equal treatment when it comes to different aspects of life whether it is related to socio-political or economic.  As long as there is an opportunity available out there, I think we need to and have respect for each other (or sometimes, it depends on or let say a case to case basis).

With the recent issues happening in the past, I also found this online. Gender Equality for Men and Women. 

Gender Equality” refers to the principle asserting the equality of men and women and their right to enjoy equal conditions realizing their full human potentials to contribute to and benefit from the results of development, and with the State recognizing that all human beings are free and equal in dignity and rights. - Section 4, 12-E Republic Act No. 9710: AN ACT PROVIDING FOR THE MAGNA CARTA OF WOMEN.

How are these things co-related to Notables At AIM? A speaker series and a forum with a topic of Equality: Is it achievable?

Explained that the speaker series is no ordinary speaking engagement. "it provides a much-needed arena for an informed and purposeful exchange on relevant issues,
He also emphasized the relevance of creating conversations about the event's topic, "The third out of the seven fundamental human needs is the need to belong or connection. It comes after subsistence and security, and growth and understanding. Inclusivity addresses and fulfills that need. How do we achieve it? We temper if not altogether do away with discrimination. How do we go about it? We start with intelligent discourse. This is why and how Notables at AIM came to be. We are going to talk about inclusivity in the workplace for increased productivity; in our institutions and industries for growth, and in our communities for general wellbeing. Inclusivity critical yet complicated humanitarian issue Let's start engaging with it." 
AIM  MBM Batch '95 organized Notables at AIM to further the renowned international management school's advocacy in providing quality education. The batch also hopes to raise funds for scholarships.
