Learning Journey II: Fashion Exchange
Hosted by George Brown College

A desk is a dangerous 

place from which
to view the world.
–John LeCarre

The Filipina Leadership Global 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 and business portfolios. These experiences enable us to deepen, accelerate, and internalize our own learnings about the complexities of how to get ahead, how to assess our current career or business situation, how to advocate for what we want, and a deep understanding of the issues that influence Filipina women globally.

Learning Journeys reflect our conviction that the most powerful learning occurs through interaction and sharing of experiences, visits to sites where business and product innovation happen, and not from books, lectures or speeches. 

Learning Journey #2: Fashion Exchange
Hosted by George Brown College

We shuttle over to the George Brown College Fashion Exchange, a fashion hub in Toronto’s Regent Park neighbourhood to provide a collaborative space for community, education and industry to connect. Located at 63 Regent Park Blvd., it is a place where immigrants and at-risk youth can receive specialized training to prepare them for entry-level positions in the fashion industry. The Apparel Fit Technician and Industrial Power Sewing programs were developed with George Brown’s School of Fashion, the college's Community Partnerships Office and the Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure.
