From October 25-27, 2007, the Filipina Women’s Network will be sponsoring
their Fifth Annual Filipina Summit. An estimated 350 Filipina women from
all over the U.S., many of them political, civic and industry leaders, will
gather in Washington D.C. Every year, the Filipina Women's Network (FWN)
brings together Filipina women, corporate America's untapped source of
leadership at a time when economic, social and political challenges demand
new styles of leadership and innovation. FWN strives to meet this demand by
providing Filipina women with knowledge and resources and by connecting
women with community leaders, industry experts, nonprofit, academic and
government professionals, and with each other.
The FWN Summit will held in October in celebration of Filipino Heritage
Month. Highlighted in this summit, FWN will announced the final receipts of
the 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the US. FAHSI is excited to
announced that our Youth Program Director has been nominated for this award.
