DOE’s ENEReady Goes to Visayas

Wazzup Pilipinas!

BREAKING GENDER STEREOTYPES: The Department of Energy presented the gender-neutral careers in the energy sector to 180 students from Lourdes National High School in Panglao, Bohol.

Secretary Alfonso Cusi of the Department of Energy (DOE) believes women can chart successful careers in the energy sector. 

With this thrust, the DOE gathered the students of the Lourdes National High School in the scenic island of Panglao, Bohol last October 16 for its ENEReady Program. 180 grades 7 to 10 students participated with 41 members of the Girl Scouts of the Philippines leading the pack.

The DOE team, composed of young geologists, petroleum and electrical engineers, introduced the challenging and exciting jobs in the energy sector. The resource persons shared their experiences in the field and the practical lessons which emanated from their wise choice of college courses. They explained their responsibilities in the upstream (exploration, drilling, extraction, and production) to downstream (transmission, distribution, and utilization) energy sector activities. 

The DOE found the students very receptive and eager to learn about the relatively high-paying job opportunities that may await them in the energy sector. They include the technical jobs available in onshore and offshore areas, on top of the more common occupations in energy development. 

ENEReady is a continuing effort of the DOE under Sec. Cusi which now reached around 2,500 students after the Panglao visit. Last September, the program was brought to Mandaue City Comprehensive National High School in Cebu. The program is spearheaded by the DOE Consumer Welfare and Promotion Office (CWPO). 


GENDER EQUALITY: Helen B. Arias, Division Chief of the Department of Energy (DOE) Consumer Welfare and Promotion Office, encourages students of Lourdes National High School to pursue science, engineering and technology courses in the ENEReady program held in Bohol last October 16.

FUTURE GEOLOGISTS: Geothermal expert Jose Miguel Paras impresses on students of the Lourdes National High School in Panglao, Bohol the career possibilities in the geothermal sector where the Philippines is the third largest producer in the world.
