The Most Influential Filipina Women in the World Award – Founder and Pioneer Award category
This award honors Filipina women in their capacities as the chief executive, president, executive director or founder of a company, community organization, non-profit, or business venture that they helped start, build or significantly grow. This award category is for the trailblazers who have marshaled resources and applied innovative practices, processes and/or technologies in a new and groundbreaking way to address significant business or organizational opportunity.
“The Global FWN100™ women are dynamic entrepreneurs, rising stars under age 35, practitioners, behind-the-scene leaders, community, government and corporate managers and executives who have moved through the ranks in large organizations, nonprofits, and government agencies. They are inspiring examples of women doing extraordinary work who will motivate our youth and future leaders,” said Marily Mondejar, Founder and CEO of the Filipina Women’s Network. “They were selected based on the size and scope of their positions, influence in their industries and their communities, board affiliations and other leadership roles.”
The Global FWN100 Award™ is a working recognition award with a meaningful purpose: FWN’s 2020 Vision: a Filipina woman leader in every sector of the global economy. The awardees are asked tore-invent herself by femtoring (female mentoring) a young Filipina woman and bring her to the Filipina Leadership Global Summit on October 25-29, 2017 in Toronto, Canada at the Intercontinental Toronto Centre.
“Dina Dela Paz-Stalder is now a valued partner in helping FWN develop the Filipina community’s pipeline of qualified leaders to increase the odds that some will rise to the “president” position in all sectors of the global economy,” added Dr. Maria Beebe, FWN’s Board Chair. “We gather all these amazing women at the Filipina Summit to inspire each other and create synergy. We interview each awardee so that their collective stories of how they disrupted their professional and personal lives will be part of the largest recorded diaspora in modern times.”
“The summit’s theme this year is Filipina Women: Leading. Advocating. Impacting. Seeing all the Awardees on stage during the gala awards ceremony assures me that the future of our young Filipina sisters is solid,” said Susie Quesada, President of Ramar Foods and FWN President. “Awardees often share this inspiring evening with their mothers, grandmothers, daughters, sons, spouses, partners, young women and men, mentors and bosses from their organizations. They all come on stage to celebrate her.”
“I feel overwhelmed that I have been awarded for the Most Influential Filipina Woman in the World Award: Founder & Pioneer. I did not expect that they’re going to give me this opportunity to show my capability as a Filipino and as a woman in inspiring business entrepreneurs. Now, I am more motivated to encourage more people with my story – from my humble beginnings to the dazzling height of success. May we all continue to work together, nurture and empower this unique group, FWN” says Dina Dela Paz-Stalder.
