Welcome to the 13th Filipina Leadership Global Summit and to beautiful Cebu, Philippines!

Each year, the Filipina Women’s Network explores these questions when designing the Filipina Summit’s intensive learning experience. The summit brings together Filipina women leaders from a variety of industries and countries to think collaboratively about the future of our respective communities, work, and leadership. The sessions, action group discussions, and personal reflections, are designed to help you gain insights about the future of leadership as a Filipina woman.

The group also provides a Network Operations Center for the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), the global, high-performance, unclassified network linking 40 DOE research sites, computational facilities and major scientific instruments.

Bautista manages a successful paid internship program for students, actively conducts outreach to high schools, and colleges, collaborates with her partners in national labs and universities to introduce students to computational science as a career. She also collaborates with diversity groups in schools and communities in the technology area like the Anita Borg Institute Systers to create a pipeline for an inclusive workforce program.

She is Founder of Filipinas in Computing, a subgroup of Asian Women in Computing and a community of the Anita Borg Institute, a community that brings together Filipino women who have an interest in, work in, or studying in areas of computing technology or STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Their goal is to promote the existence of this demographic group, raise awareness about issues faced by Filipinas in this industry, share best practices, inspire one another and to celebrate their success. As a group, they foster and provide mentorship, create an environment of support, promote leadership and professional development and encourage diversity by promoting and encouraging Filipinas to enter this professional area.
