There are two workshops we are convening pre-Summit on Wednesday, October 25, 2017:
- Musical Coding: “Turn Up For STEAM” workshop presented by Musical Notes. This is for 9-12 year old Filipina Canadian girls who are interested in a one-of-a-kind STEAM Workshop called Turn Up for STEAM with culturally relevant examples where they can seamlessly integrate; for instance, Hip-Hop, music, science, and math. There will be a short graduation/presentation after the workshop. Each girl should be able to bring their own laptop and headphones to class.
- Robotics “Wonder-Full Adventures with Robots: Dash and Dot” for high school Filipina Canadian girls. We are looking for 10 teams. Each team consists of 1 adult/teacher preferred and 4 team members. Each team will get to bring the robot they worked on back to their high school. See equipment requirements to bring to the workshop below.
Participation in both Pre-Summit workshops is COMPLIMENTARY.

Global FWN100™ Awardees and FWN Board Members will facilitate this awesome and popular panel—one of the highlights of the Summit—femtoring next generation leaders. READY … SET … GO … AND FEMTOR ! ! !
FWN's 8th year of building the pipeline next generation of Pinay leaders. Pinay Speed Femtoring is a learning event at which femtees / protégés can ask the Global FWN100™ Awardees (AKA Femtors) the "everything-you've-always-wanted-to-know-but-didn't-know-whom-to-ask" questions. Femtees will have the opportunity to interact with Femtors during the course of the session by moving to different topic tables every 15 minutes.
Advance sign-up is required for Femtees so you will be able to indicate, in advance, the areas in which you would most like to give (if you're a Femtor) or receive (if you're a Femtee) advice.
