Belize Coast Guard Officer attends Gender Perspective Seminar in USA

Posted: Thursday, March 9, 2017. 10:11 am CST.

By BBN Staff: Alma Pinelo, a Lieutenant of the Belize Coast Guard (BCG) is attending the 2nd annual seminar on military gender perspective which is being held in Washington, D.C. from March 7-9, 2017.

This year, the seminar is being held under the theme “Peace and Security from a Gender Perspective: A Political and Strategic Vision” and is organized by the Inter-American Defense College (IADC), and the National Academy of Political and Strategic Studies (ANEPE). The seminar aims to contribute to this effort based on the experience and commitment of both these institutions by promoting Resolution 1325 (UNSC), on Women, Peace and Security.

According to a Government of Belize press release, the regional military organizations hope to advance these efforts by generating a document that contains the best practices to achieve a greater integration of the women in the Armed Forces and Security in the Hemisphere from a political and strategic vision.

Pinelo will make representation on behalf of the Ministry of Defence, which includes the Belize Defence Force (BDF) and the Belize Coast Guard.

This is the second time that Belize has participated in this initiative. Last year, the event was held from March 7-11.
