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.
