Looking forward to attending the 2nd annual Fly Pinay Leadership Summit this weekend. As the closing keynote speaker, I’ll be spending my time reflecting on the remarkable resilience of migrant women. Much like the women in The Labor of Care, my mother and the fly Filipinas organizing for dignity and justice for our community in the U.S. and in the Philippines.
This day consists of coordinated keynote addresses, leadership and cultural workshops, and TED-style talks from leading Pinays in civics, education, entrepin@yership/business, technology and the community, to engage women and girls in issues of Filipina American experiences today. At our inaugural Fly Pinays Leadership Summit last year, we hosted ~100 Filipina mentors and mentees and expect our numbers to keep growing.
