FWN’s 10th Annual Filipina Leadership Summit: "Global Filipina Women: Power & Influence" A Learning Journey To Filipina Global Power

The annual summit is more than a field trip, symposium or forum. It is a Learning Journey - which immerses us in the reality – and long-range implications – of the politics of developing our career portfolio. These experiences enable us to deepen, accelerate, and internalize our own learning about the business of how to get ahead, assess our current career situation or business, how to advocate for what we want, and understanding the issues that influence Filipina women globally.

Learning Journeys reflect our conviction that the most powerful learning occurs through interaction and sharing of experiences, not from books or speeches.

Make Me A Filipina Millionaire

Being a Filipina business woman and having it all. The truth is, being in business is a constant challenge and reinvention.  Women entrepreneurs engaging conversations on becoming millionaires, how they did it, sustain it and own their success without the guilt. Attendees will leave the session feeling inspired on what they could with an idea that could turn into a business. Remarkable Filipina entrepreneurs will engage us in conversation and story-telling ala "The View".

• How they reached their first million dollars in business,
• Sustain their business as they work their passion,
• Achieve their dreams,
• Share their prosperity with those who need it, and
• Global perspective - how their business affects our families and communities
