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 Political Insider -

Smart, qualified, brilliant, highly trained team of elite professionals - Pinays "in the know" keeping APIs issues included in the conversation as policies are developed and laws are passed. These politically savvy leaders take initiative, forge consensus and ultimately help their bosses maximize their impact so Filipinos can thrive in a competitive political climate where issues drive conversations and not partisanship.

You don't have to be in politicis to learn from this session. If you enjoy strategy and tactics, you will walk away with a clearer understanding of how you can increase your influence in your own organization, influence your boss and those who matter in your career success; find meaning from work you think you hate but can actually thrive by shifting the conversation to issues that matter to you.

FWN100 '09 | | My family came here from the Philippines. I grew up in San Leandro. My dad was a grocery store produce man and my mom sold hot dogs in the Coliseum.
