Professional Mondays @ FWN

FWN Professional Development Series (June 18 thru Aug 13)

FWN9s programming launched in 2002 is designed to reflect FWN9s mission and goals:
  • Enhance public perceptions of Filipina women9s capacities to lead, 
  • Change biases against Filipina women9s leadership abilities, and
  • Promote the entry of Filipina women into positions of leadership in corporate, government, and nonprofit sectors.
The series is based on the 12 Life Areas of Empowerment adapted from the work of Schein, Farren, Hudson and  Kaye.   
FWN workshops and seminars are designed around these life areas which represent the diverse needs of FWN members. Workshop facilitators are invited specialists who contribute their knowledge for the advancement and development of FWN members and Filipina women.  
The Professional Development Series can be taken by anyone regardless of education, work experience, age or life situation.
Professional Development Philosophy
The Professional Development Series builds on the 12 life challenges which an individual confronts at each stage of adulthood.  The program is best appreciated when participants take the Life Empowerment Overview.  It provides a practical foundation for career pathing and life planning. 
The overview takes a three-dimensional approach - the ability to reflect and learn from our past, acknowledge our accomplishments to date and design a future that could bring career satisfaction and life fulfillment.
