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 CEO - The message of Lean In for Filipina women-on-the-rise. Implications for Filipina Women of the World. Competitiveness and growth in the workplace. Joining the conversation, sharing "Lean In Moments", connecting with other Filipina women across the globe. Is Lean In the answer to Filipina Global100 Power?
