Empowering Filipino women, Filipina Women’s Network (FWN) officially launched ‘Disrupt 3.0 Filipina Women: Rising,’ a book on Filipino women leaders, and their leadership, last February 4 in the Miguel Pro Multi-Purpose Room.
Students of the Ateneo de Davao University were honored to hear from the authors, Georgitta ‘Beng’ Pimentel Puyat, writer of the part Volunteerism: A Life’s Journey; Mylene Romualdez Abiva, writer of Filipina: Champion of the Geeks; and Joji Ilagan Bian, Dreaming Big: Giving the Best and its book editor, Maria Beebe, PhD.
The authors, who are professionals who excel in their respective fields, shared their experiences and inspiration as to why they decided to discuss particular subjects in connection with their lives as women.
“Women are natural multi-taskers,” FELTA President/CEO Mylene Romualdez Abiva, a 2016 “100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World” awardee said. “Be fearless and innovative as a leader.”
Maria Beebe also emphasized that the book aims to “disrupt the status quo,” pertaining to the stereotypes and gender biases imposed to women.
Releasing the third installment of the Disrupt: Filipina Leadership Book Series, FWN continues to inspire Filipino women around the world by presenting the narratives of their fellow Filipina and through their various programs that encourage women to lead.
