The Filipina Women’s Network (FWN) is thrilled to announce its first of a series of leadership books.
“DISRUPT: Proud. Loud. Leading Without a Doubt” is a collective synthesis on the meaning of Filipina women’s leadership experiences as they navigated the corporate cultures in the global workplace.
The book will be launched at the 11th Filipina Leadership Global Summit at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel on October 5-8, 2014. The selected authors are recipients of FWN’s 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World Award™.
“This book project is a deep examination of how Filipina women in diaspora thrived in the challenges of living in the modern multi-cultural global economy,” explained Susie Quesada, president of FWN. “This is the definitive book that will change the public’s perceptions of Filipina women’s capacities to lead, FWN’s Pinay Power 2020 mission,” Quesada emphasized.
“I congratulate the FWN editorial board for their labor of love, guiding the authors’ writings and in the daunting task of pulling all the details of the publishing process. KUDOS for the elegant book cover design goes to multi-awarded Lucille Lozada Tenazas, Global FWN100 ‘13 and Henry Wolf Professor of Communication Design & Associate Dean of Art, Media and Technology at Parsons The New School for Design.”
FWN Founder & CEO Marily Mondejar aptly encapsulates the leadership journeys of Filipina women which inspired the book’s title, DISRUPT: Proud. Loud. Leading Without A Doubt.
