The Filipina Women's Network is a San Francisco based non-profit professional organization for women of Philippine ancestry with members worldwide. We promote the social welfare of Filipina women and advocate for Filipina women's rights. FWN provides the content, credibility and community to help women of Philippine ancestry succeed in their businesses and careers. FWN provides knowledge, products, education, research and a worldwide network for Filipina women professionals. FWN convenes programs and activities that enhance public perceptions of Filipina women's capacities to lead and to build the Filipina community's pipeline of qualified leaders, to increase the odds that some Filipina women will rise to the 'president' position in the private and public sectors worldwide. FWN provides Filipina women with opportunities to share practical career and business experiences. This focus on actual career and business experiences, rather than theory, from practitioners, corporate managers, entrepreneurs, elected / appointed officials, nonprofit and community leaders, along with peer networking, are the distinguishing features of FWN meetings.
