The Foundation for Filipina Women’s Network (FWN) is the organization for career women of Philippine ancestry. Our passion is to help Filipina women achieve previously unimaginable levels of performance in the public and private sectors. We accomplish this through FWN’s five strategic directions and by nurturing the growth and influence of our members’ businesses and careers, breaking barriers that make it difficult or impossible to succeed.

With members in 34 countries, FWN provides INFLUENCE. KNOWLEDGE. ACCESS.

FWN convenes programs and activities that enhance public perceptions of Filipina women's capacities to lead and to build the Filipina community's pipeline of qualified leaders, to increase the odds that many Filipina women will rise to the president position in the private and public sectors worldwide.

Countries where FWN Awardees live: 

Africa, Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, People’s Republic of China (Hong Kong), Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Mozambique, The Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Qatar, Singapore, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States of America (23 states)

Why Our Meetings Are Different

FWN provides Filipina women with opportunities to share practical career and business experiences. This focus on actual career and business experiences, rather than theory, from practitioners, corporate managers and leaders, along with peer networking, are the distinguishing features of FWN meetings.
