Summit 2010 Learning Tracks

  • What can we do to nurture a culture where every Filipina leader feels responsible for creating her own area of expertise courageously - even against resistance?
  • What can we do to encourage openness towards new things, learning, and change in our Filipina American community?
  • What can we do to support each other working on their best ability and walking the "extra mile" for success?
  • What can we do to ensure motivation, ability to perform, and the health of our Pinay sisters in a result driven work and business environment?

Filipina Leadership Summit Design Overview
Thematically, the FWN Summit sessions focus on "advancing Filipina women in the United States and global workplaces" as career professionals and entrepreneurs operating in the private and public sectors including the military and defense industries. FWN's educational programming is designed to reflect FWN's mission and goals:

  • Enhance public perceptions of Filipina women's capacities to lead,
  • Change biases against Filipina women's leadership abilities,
  • Promote the entry of Filipina women into positions of leadership in corporate, government, and nonprofit sectors,
  • Build the Filipina community's pipeline of qualified leaders to increase the odds that some will rise to the President position in all sectors.

FWN's Professional Development Philosophy

The FWN Summit has a leadership learning focus building on the key Leadership Competencies that enable Filipina leaders and professionals improve their effectiveness so they can do successful work in the U.S. and global workplaces.

Competencies can be defined as: knowledge, skills, abilities, behaviors, accomplishments, traits, and/or characteristics, i.e., success factors, that when combined and demonstrated with the necessary level of proficiency, would yield desired outcomes.  It sets the stage to further leverage strengths, identify characteristics for successful leadership and areas for improvement.

The FWN Leadership Competencies are inspired by the major leadership attributes based on more than 25 years of research, observation and recurring themes from leaders who have attended the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) programs:
  • Vision
  • Diplomacy
  • Personal Style
  • Management
  • Feedback
  • Personal Energy
  • Empowerment
  • Entrepreneurialism
