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. 

“A desk is a dangerous place from which to view the world.”  - John LeCarre

Shaping the Filipina Pop Culture Image
Limited Capacity seats available

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.

Her wide span of networks and persistent work to build bridges resulted in co-founding the progressive organization, Citizen Hope, which engages in community and civic service projects. | | Ocampo's commitment was catapulted by the series of natural disasters in 2009 as she began galvanizing teams across organizations and communities to begin disaster relief - efforts that were recognized for their vast coverage, speed and success. This pushed her advocacy to span across the Pacific, through her organization, Bay Area Benefit, which serves the international community through "guerilla philanthropy," towards equality and justice. In 2010, she was honored for her humanitarian work with a Presidential Citation from Her Excellency Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, former President of the Republic of the Philippines. | Ocampo currently lives in the City of San Mateo and has been a member of the Commission on the Status of Women since April, 2011...

Mission of Filipino Googlers Network: 
Empower Filipino Googlers and Filipinos globally with education as the catalyst for action.

ERGs (or Employee Resource Groups) at Google exist to promote inclusion, social networking, development/advancement of its members, make meaningful connections to our business, and often focus on community outreach. The Filipino Googler Network was established in late 2011.

We intentionally chose "education" as a core driver to our projects because it keeps with Google's mission (to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible) and our group strongly believes that knowledge is sticky. Once you get a taste through any of our focus areas - then it's tough to shake, you can't help but want to do more!

To date members of the Filipino Googler Network have built connections here and beyond Google through social events, volunteerism, represented the unique Pinay "leaned in" perspective at leadership panels, contributed policy feedback, shared stories outside the G of "what it takes to be a Pinoy Googler" to encourage others to follow, mentored our own, pitched in when our Kababayans were in need and more. We're beyond excited about the possibilities for 2013.

We're committed to deepening the relationship with PhilDev to inspire entrepreneurship and innovation. We’re also working with the Apl.de.ap Foundation to further empower young Filipinos to recognize the reach an education can bring and how technology can play a tremendous part in accessibility and knowledge sharing. At the local outreach level, we're bringing  HS students to Google next year to help kids better understand how STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) are cool and what the possibilities are when you enter the tech workplace (limitless!). We're beyond lucky to work for a company that supports our interests, rallies together to help locals in times of need through efforts like the crisis maps and recognizes the unique value ERGs play in building community, leadership and innovation.

Food, Politics, Labor, and Social Media
Limited Capacity seats available

Food, Politics, Labor and Social Media - a provocative discussion on the four areas that can put the Filipina community on the mainstream business map:

  • Food, Labor and Social Media are the 3 areas that Filipinos are very engaged.  We love to eat and we do things together best when we are at the dining table.
  • The Food industry has a high employee population of Filipinos - who are underpaid and need to find ways to be recognized for their talent.  Ramar Foods is the leading manufacturer of Filipino food and a major vendor to the US military - gives Filipino cusine an opportunity to be mainstream
  • The politics of food - how and what we eat can influence the larger community and the food industry.
  • How social media transforms the way we live and do business - Filipinos are the largest community of Facebook users. Can you imagine the power we wield? 
  • Why Filipina women should be engaged in politics - be at the table when decisions/policies are made that affect our communities and how we live. 
  • What is trending in politics, labor, food and law... more women in law schools, pathways to civic engagement, public service and politics 
  • Labor is the politics of work

Closing Keynote & Remarks

FWN Day @ Google, 345 Spear Street, San Francisco

Our day at the Google Campus is through the collaboration with the Filipino Googlers Network (FGN).
We close with an inspiring global message from Margaret Lapiz, Vice President, Margaret Lapiz, Vice President for Strategy, Kaiser Permanente - The Permanente Medical Group 

FGN MISSION STATEMENT:

Empower Filipino Googlers and Filipinos globally with education as the catalyst for action.

About Google

It’s really the people that make Google the kind of company it is. We hire people who are smart and determined, and we favor ability over experience. Although Googlers share common goals and visions for the company, we hail from all walks of life and speak dozens of languages, reflecting the global audience that we serve. And when not at work, Googlers pursue interests ranging from cycling to beekeeping, from frisbee to foxtrot.

 

What we believe:

  1. Focus on the user and all else will follow.
  2. It’s best to do one thing really, really well.
  3. Fast is better than slow.
  4. Democracy on the web works.
  5. You don’t need to be at your desk to need an answer.
  6. You can make money without doing evil.
  7. There’s always more information out there.
  8. The need for information crosses all borders.
  9. You can be serious without a suit.

10. Great just isn’t good enough.

10:30am

Filipina GLOBAL Leaders: Pinay, Pinay, saan ka pupunta? Nandito na ako!
Competencies for Global Leaders
Pinay, pinay, saan ka pupunta? Nandito na ako!

The panelists will reflect on their definition of leadership and their leader identity, to what extent Philippine culture has underpinned their leadership, and what cultural adjustments were made to succeed in academia, government, corporate, and nonprofit sectors in the global workplace. From their reflection on their journey from the Philippines to the global workplace, the themes to be explored are: 
  • What has shaped their core identity, that fixed sense of self that underlie their continuously shifting multiple identities as they demonstrate their power and influence;
  • How has their Philippine heritage formed their values, their sense of purpose and how they see the world;
  • How have their experiences beyond home challenged or reinforced their notions of leadership;
  • How do they cope with cognitive dissonance when Philippine traditional beliefs are at odds with the requirements of making it in the global workplace? 

Through their personal narratives, the panelists will reflect on how and why certain global competencies were key to their success as influential Filipinas in the world. These competencies might include: 
  • Decision-making that is timely and effective.
  • Negotiating the use of time, roles, and resources with individuals and groups to translate strategy into action.  
  • Setting direction, motivating, coaching, gaining and maintaining commitment. 
  • Knowing the business of the university, corporate, and NGO and making it work.
  • Dealing well with setbacks, and remaining calm, resolute and resilient under stress.
  • Knowing how to conduct business throughout the world.
  • Perspective taking, listening well, accepting divergent points of view, and acting and communicating from the perspective of others.
  • Innovating by integrating knowledge, perspectives and entities to create new outcomes.
  • Adapting to meet cultural expectations.

Understanding Filipina women's leadership styles have implications for gender, intercultural leadership research and practice in the global environment. Understanding how Filipina women bridge the range of Filipino and global cultures will contribute to a theory of culture; challenge existing theories of multi-culturalism; and, extend the thinking on co-culturation and global moral leadership.
