The World Economic Forum projects it will take the world 217 years to reach gender parity at the rate it’s going now. Analisa Leonor Balares (US FWN100™ '09 and Global FWN100™ '14), recognized by the same organization as a “Young Global Leader,” knows this well. She's spent the last ten years trying to size down that statistic through a non-profit global community geared toward empowering and training women. She’s called the brainchild of her days at Harvard Business School, “Womensphere.” On its tenth year, it's heading back to its roots in the Philippines.
Dr. Ernie De Los Santos Mac (Global FWN100™ '13)'s charity activities indicate that her brand of generosity is not the flash-in- the-pond or once-in-a-blue-moon type. It is a life-time commitment. Her keen sense of philanthropy springs directly from the heart, and this compels her to act instinctively whenever she sees the need to extend a helping hand.
