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

The Filipina Leadership Global Summit is exclusively designed for the Global FWN100™ Awardees—Filipina women leaders creating change in the world of Filipinas in diaspora.

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.

Filipina GLOBAL Leaders Discussion & Action
This is a very informal Kwentuhan session (a la "The View") among kindred spirits on civic engagement, public service, social and political action. We’d like the discussion to incorporate the summit theme and the attendees to leave inspired with an action item of what they can do to get more engaged in the community.

The Global Leaders Panel will discuss and formulate actions on how we, as a leadership group, can shape and move the Filipina Women's Global Agenda on the issues impacting women. We will break out into small sessions after the keynote and come together again for each group's Action Items Report.

Awardees will sit together in their award categories for discussion and 1 Action Outcome:
  • BEHIND THE SCENES LEADERS - What boundaries were broken in your industry, profession, organization or community? How did you participate?
  • BUILDERS - Environmental Justice: Creating Livable Communities for Families
  • EMERGING LEADERS - What distinguishes the Global FWN100™ awardees? How has your experiences work for you and will work for other Filipina women?  
  • FOUNDERS & PIONEERS - Shaping and Moving a Women’s Agenda: Holding Public Officials Accountable and Lobbying Effectively
  • INNOVATORS & THOUGHT LEADERS - Ending Violence and Exploitation Against Women and Girls
  • POLICYMAKERS & VISIONARIES - Making Government Work for Women and Girls: Structural Reform as a Women’s Issue
  • KEEPERS OF THE FLAME - Challenging the status quo is a significant motivator in the Filipina diaspora. How do you challenge? How did you challenge?
