About the Filipina Leadership Global Summit

14th Filipina Leadership Global Summit, 25–29 October 2017, InterContinental Toronto

The Filipina Women’s Network’s annual Filipina Leadership Global Summit brings together Filipina women global leaders, influencers, thinkers and public figures for discussions, learning journeys, “kwentuhan strategies” on how to succeed as multi-cultural professionals and private chats 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. It is the leading forum of its kind in the Filipina global community which inspires a renewed understanding of the Filipino culture’s emerging influence as a community.

The summit is FWN's signature fundraiser with proceeds funding FWN’s programs that foster the Filipina women’s socio- economic, political and educational advancement in addition to raising awareness of FWN’s pipeline development of qualified next generation leaders to increase the odds that some will rise to the “president” position.

The Summit convenes sessions, presentations, and Learning Journeys to confront issues and barriers that affect the economic trade and investment opportunities of Filipina women business owners and the careers of Filipina professionals in the Philippines, U.S. and countries with a high population of Filipina women. 

The highlight of the Summit is the announcement of the complete list of the Global FWN100™ Awardees at the Awards Ceremony and Gala.
