Program Highlights

12th Filipina Leadership Global Summit

FWN's annual Filipina Leadership Global Summit—from October 29 to 31 in San Francisco—brings together Filipina women global leaders, influencers, thinkers and public figures for workshops, discussions, and "kwentuhan" to ignite cooperation through public and private partnerships. The high-powered gathering is a vital part of FWN's Pinay Power 2020 Mission: A Filipina leader in every sector of the economy.

DISRUPT: Filipina Women: Proud. Loud. Leading Without Doubt.

The first book on Filipina Global Leadership is a compilation of narratives and case studies by Filipina leaders based in countries around the world. Key themes include identity (including consanguinity and affinity), migration, gender, and leadership on public policy, advocacy, diplomacy, entrepreneurship and other sectors. A synthesis chapter will make recommendations for aspiring leaders as well as thought leaders in the field.


FEMtorMatch™ is FWN’s strategy for development of the next generation of Filipina leaders through local and global partnerships between female mentors—FEMtors™ and female mentees—FEMtees™. FEMtorMatch™ provides structured one-on-one mentoring that harnesses the power of the Internet to broaden and deepen the reach of traditional mentoring. Thus, both FEMtors™ and FEMtees™ can reside anywhere in the world.

Rebuild Tacloban for the Women and Girls

In response to the devastation wrought by Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in 2013, FWN embarked on economic livelihood projects for the women survivors of Tacloban City in the Philippines.

Contributions and all proceeds go to these special projects FWN ignited to help in the rebuilding efforts in collaboration with Feed the Hungry Philippines.
