Filipina Women in the Diaspora:
How Women Lead; How Women Actively Support the Sisterhood
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?

  • 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
