The book is a deep examination of how Filipina women in diaspora thrive in the challenges of living in the modern multi-cultural global economy, “DISRUPT” is the definitive book that will change the public’s perceptions of Filipina women’s capacities to lead, FWN’s Pinay Power 2020 mission.
Filipina women are the ultimate global disrupters. They disrupted their lives—families and careers—when they left their home country to immigrate to foreign lands and re-invent their lives.
They disrupted their organizations as they became achievers in their professional fields and broke "glass ceilings". They disrupted the business landscape when they innovated products, improved or created services that impacted the lives of women and the community. They disrupted their communities as they became strong advocates for social issues that affected their families especially their children. They disrupted the political world when they ran for elected office representing causes benefiting their local communities or became political insiders as valued advisors of the elected officials they work for.
Filipina women leaders in diaspora share their career journeys - sacrifices they endured to seek better lives for themselves and their families, how they thrived in the modern multi-cultural global economy.
