2013 marked a historic milestone.
In celebration of our 10th year, we launched Pinay Power 2020—a global campaign to select the first 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World. In San Francisco, amazing and influential Filipina leaders gathered for the 10th Filipina Leadership Summit: Global Filipina Women—Power & Influence. And, wow! It was truly a memorable summit.
We left re-invigorated, re-inspired, and re-energized to advance and recognize Filipina women around the globe, and to influence and FEMtor the next generation of future Filipina leaders.
Team FWN thanks our sponsors, advertisers, donors, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, appointed and elected officials, and volunteers who helped make the Filipina Summit an exhilarating and sensational experience!
