Plastic ban overlooks real problem
Some people are complaining that the ban on the use of plastic bags, which many local governments have imposed, is very inconvenient, especially if they have to buy wet stuff like meat, poultry or seafood. Others worry that the increased use of paper bags, in lieu of plastic, will mean more trees will be cut. - Read more.

Connect with your Pinay roots during the "Shaping the Filipina Pop Culture Image" session at the 10th Filipina Leadership Summit (Oct 24-26).

This session will delve deep into the subject of the Filipina pop culture image which is heavily influenced by mass media. How has popular culture influenced the perception of Filipina women in the community, the workplace, our own home countries and throughout the world? What has popular culture done to define the 'culturedness' of the lower classes outside of the 'official culture' and education emanated by the dominant classes? What can be done to re-shape the assumptions and stereotypes that Filipinas encounter? Listen to this fascinating discussion by experts in advertising, marketing, media, and image management.

Moderator and Speakers at this session include:
  • Odete Keeley, Director, National Network Building
  • Pati Navalta Poblete, Asia Regional Director, World Outreach and Media
  • Cristina Luna, The Luna Company
  • Edwina Kluender, Director of Communications, Mandarin Oriental San Francisco
  • Vivian Araullo, former Head of News Production, Executive Producer, ABS-CBN International/The Filipino Channel
