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.

Shaping the Filipina Pop Culture Image - 
Heavily influenced by mass media, popular culture generalizes the lifestyle and tastes of a group of people.  How has popular culture influenced the perception of Filipina women in the community, the workplace, our own home countries and throughout the world? What has popular culture done to define the 'culturedness' of the lower classes outside of the 'official culture' and education emanated by the dominant classes? What can be done to re-shape the assumptions and stereotypes that Filipinas encounter? Fascinating discussion topic by experts in advertising, marketing, media and image management. Attendees leave with an action item of what they can do to influence the pop culture images of Filipina women.
