FWN members convened at the Ramon Magsaysay Room at the Manila Peninsula Hotel on March 8th to #TakeAction in celebration of International Women's Day. The celebration brought together over a dozen FWN members and awardees for an afternoon of great food, networking and inspiring conversations to kick off the 13th Filipina Leadership Global Summit in the Philippines this September.
