We are proud to announce that the Filipina Women's Network was among the organizations honored with the 2017 TOP HAT Award at this year's STARBlazers & TOP HATs “Give Back and Beyond” Awards Gala organized by PhilAm BID (Philippine American Business Improvement and Development Organization) and ACCESS International (American Commerce, Culture, Education and Social Services International). FWN Founder and CEO Marily Mondejar was also among the 2017 TOP HAT Honorees.
The Outstanding Professionals and High Achieving Teams (TOP HATS) are all highly successful professionals and organizations who also choose to “give back” to their communities. FWN was one of the organizations selected to receive the honor this year, along with Lions Club International and the Philippine Medical Association.
Spearheading the annual STARBlazers & TOP HATS “Give Back” Awards Gala is Edna Consing Concepcion (Global FWN100™ '17), the Co-Founding Chair and CEO of PhilAm BID. Edna was honored with the 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World™ Award: Founder & Pioneer at the 14th Filipina Leadership Global Summit in Toronto, Canada in October.
The 12th STARBlazer and TOP HATS Awards Gala was held on Saturday, December 9th at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina.
