Where are all the Filipina Women in Politics & Public Service?
Do you want to know how to be appointed to a state or city board or commission? Come and join us. Learn the nuts and bolts of preparing yourself for appointment.

Have you ever Googled yourself? According to Judge Lorna Schofeld, the first Fil-Am federal judge in New York, "the top 200 hits can make the difference in your boards and commissions appointment". 
Senator Charles Schumer recommended her, and later President Obama nominated her, to the position of Article III Judge of the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York. Schofield reached out to the Filipino community for support. Diversity was important to the process; it was to Senator Schumer and to President Obama, she said.

Engage and learn about how to develop a purposeful career in public service. Explore community, civic engagement options, serving on boards & commissions, supporting elected officials, and community coalition building. Next steps in achieving full leadership potential for Filipina women:
  • Civic engagement: Where do I start? How do I get involved with the decision making in organizations that influence my life - transportation, housing, land use, health, environment, and jobs.
  • Culture, leadership, presence: how to navigate the nuts & bolts of the appointment process
  • Lessons from the trenches: words of wisdom
  • The state of the world at the local level: how it affects our families and communities and why we should get involved.
