What is the Global FWN100™ Award™?

The Global FWN100™ Award is a strategy to execute FWN’s Mission—a Filipina woman leader in every sector of the global economy by 2020.

The "100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World Award™" is the ultimate showcase of the Filipino community’s most inspiring individuals in the private and public sectors, who exemplify innovation, mentorship, professionalism, gender empowerment and leadership.

We gather the awardees at the annual Filipina Leadership Global Summit to thank them for their contributions to society and inspire them to give back / pay forward  to next generation Filipina women leaders through the tools and programs of the Filipina Women's Network.

Every year, the Filipina Women's Network conducts a WORLDWIDE search for Filipina women accomplishing great work leaving a lasting Filipino global imprint through their work in communities, organizations and in their professional and industry sectors. 

The Global FWN100 Award™ is a dream with a meaningful purpose; a strategy to build FWN's Filipina community's talent pipeline—identify qualified leaders, to increase the odds that some Filipina women will rise to the "president, CEO, C-Suite" position in the private and public sectors worldwide. 

It is a campaign to inspire, inform, and advance Filipina women leaders, position Filipina women as economic and social contributors to the global economy. The Global FWN100™ awardees provide a critical pathway for successful women who care about advancement, achievement, and significance; influencing the Filipino world community’s future.

Awards are given annually in 7 categories. A description of the award categories can be found in the Nomination and Award Categories pages.

Once selected, FWN reserves the right to withdraw the Global FWN100™ Award designation if awardee has been deemed no longer in good standing with FWN and the community.

 

Who is eligible for nomination?

The 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World Award™ (Global FWN100™) Award is a "working award" and selection is open to Filipina women around the world who are currently and actively engaged in their communities, professions, industries and the organizations they work for or are in a volunteer capacity. We do not provide posthumous awards. Retired persons with a demonstrated record supported by evidence of being actively engaged in influential activities that increase the power of Filipina women in the last three years are welcome to be nominated.

The Global FWN100™ Award recognizes leaders for actions, projects, campaigns, and/or policies that have a global impact and were conducted or championed within the immediate past 3-5 years of their nomination. It is important that these initiatives have demonstrable results and can be documented in the award nomination form submission. We are looking for initiatives that benefit or have benefitted their immediate organizations, industries or local communities 

To preserve the integrity of the Global FWN100™ Award, the organizations, individuals or communities who benefited from the actions of the nominee must be named within the nomination form submission.

 

I have a nominee who was selected for the 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the U.S.™ and the World award. Can I nominate her for the Global FWN100™?

Yes. Previous US FWN100™ and Global FWN100™ Awardees may be re-nominated every year if awardee has a demonstrated continuing influential work in her workplace AND local community. There are two award levels:

1) When selected the second time, awardee will receive the Continuing Influential Global FWN100™Award

2) The third time awardee is selected, she will be inducted into the FWN Hall of Fame, receive the Global FWN100™ Always Influential Award and will no longer qualify for further nominations.

Self nominations are not accepted for these two award levels. References and evidence of influential activities will be vetted and reviewed. 

Previous awardees are encouraged to nominate their fellow awardees for either of these two awards.  Selection will be based on how previous awardee has advanced the mission of the Filipina Women's Network (FWN) and supported its activities worldwide.

How is the “Nicole” Award special?

The “Nicole” award is designed to recognize a body of work and influential activities rather than a few initiatives conducted in the immediate 3-5 years of nominee's history. This award honors a Filipina woman whose words, actions, and activism, inspire others to act and revolutionize society’s way of understanding traditional beliefs and customs thus leaving behind a Filipino global imprint.

 

Can I nominate more than one person on the same nomination form for a particular award category or multiple award categories?

No. All award categories are designed to recognize the individual leader with responsibility for the activities or projects described in the nomination for the award category.

Please complete a separate nomination form for each nominee.

 

Can I nominate several qualified individuals for more than one award category?

Yes you may. However, the Selection Committee with concurrence from the FWN Board has the final say on which award category best describes your nominee's body of work and influential activities.

Please complete a separate nomination form for each nominee.

You may submit multiple nominations for outstanding women of Philippine ancestry from Africa, North America, South America, Asia, Australia, Antarctica, and Europe.

35% of Awardees will be selected from the United States, 35% from the Philippines, and 30% from other countries.

 

What is the nomination process?

We ask the awardees to pay for their way to attend the summit. They are welcome to find a sponsor for their travel, hotel and summit registration expenses. FWN requires awardees to let FWN know their sponsor solicitations so FWN can appropriately acknowledge their sponsors and that the awardee's sponsors meet FWN's 501(c)(3) guidelines for sponsorship. Summit sponsors can earmark certain amounts to designate awardee beneficiaries, if they choose.  For current summit sponsorship levels, go to https://www.filipinasummit.org/sponsorships

The 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World Awards™ is a recognition working award, an important initiative of Pinay Power 2020. Attendance at the Filipina Leadership Summit is important because the Summit is the only place where all influential Filipina leaders can meet each other annually, to network, collaborate, build and expand the pipeline of future Filipina leaders through femtoring and business projects.

Imagine what 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World can do when they are all in one place working toward a shared vision! Many public and private partnerships have been developed, activated and collaborated through attendance at the Filipina Leadership Global Summit through the years.

If awardee is unable to attend the year she is selected, a new nomination is required two years after her first nomination and a new nominee vetting process is then activated.
