About the Fellowship
The Filipina Women Who Could Be President Fellowship Training is a selective part-time leadership development program for future politicians, entrepreneurs, senior and executive leaders in the United States. The Filipina fellowship program will begin in 2012.
Based on established leadership competencies which includes cohort training, coaching and femtoring, the program gives Filipina women leaders the skillsets and networks they need to develop and manage highly effective campaigns and organizations in the private and public sectors.
During the program, Fellows will work with FWN Faculty comprised of national experts, guest trainers, management consultants, successful entrepreneurs, elected officials and campaign consultants to build their leadership and management skills and prepare for entrepreneurship, political office, and senior / executive leadership positions.
