Thriving in Turbulent Times
Filipina women are resilient. They are constantly growing, transforming, innovating, and changing as we secure our place in the world.
The Filipina Summit’s theme for 2009 was deliberately chosen to signal the contributions that Filipina women can make to the world at a time when many institutions and social systems are broken. Our goal is to bring together a diversity of professionals who are committed to enhancing our bi-cultural strengths and to discuss groundbreaking solutions to the inherent intercultural issues that exist. We face many challenges at both the national and global level.
Many of the challenges are rooted in cultural values and beliefs that drive how we respond to issues, issues that need thoughtful solutions. We feel a sense of urgency to come together, explore how we can help move societies and organizations toward resolution and, where needed, reconciliation.
There are conflicts mired in years of cultural misunderstanding and mistrust. There are long standing inequities that beg for attention. There are political divisions and economic pressures that need resolution.
Filipina Action Now will move us closer to our Pinay Power 2012 goals.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, student, career changer, homemaker, new or re-entering the workplace, up-and-coming supervisor, seasoned manager, or top executive, the Filipina Summit has a place for you. FWN provides tools to improve life skills, career competencies, and capacities for leadership effectiveness – thinking strategically, acting decisively, and influencing others. Focusing on real life, business, and career advancement experiences from practitioners, corporate managers, and community leaders along with peer-to-peer networking are the distinguishing features of FWN meetings.
