Celebrating International Women’s Month, this women leaders group is pulling out all the stops. Created at the start of the pandemic by Apple Esplana-Manansala, the past 2 years is seeing nothing but growth. Global Women Who RULE (GWWR) is a celebration of awe-inspiring tales from a collective of women forward-thinkers and achievers, out to pay it forward to society. On March 25, GWWR holds its main event, the GWWR Summit committed to use the power of social media to promote community and use #DigitalForGood.
On its 3rd year, the GWWR Summit 2023 features 22 profiles of Filipino women leaders from all industries from all over. Pushing 4 pillars: Education, Mental Health, Human Rights, specifically Violence Against Women (VAWC) and Health, this year’s event is on track to break its own record.
“The support has been tremendous, for which we are grateful. We have about a hundred nominees this year from PH and from the US, NA, APAC, ME and even Oceania—everywhere. It feels good to receive this kind of acknowledgement from our peers, from young women and men, and from colleagues and co-leaders, and of course from entrepreneurs and business leaders. GWWR is a ‘Circle of Sisters’ so to speak, and the outpouring of well wishes fills our hearts,” says Apple.
GWWR 2023 is the first hybrid event for the year. With the world opening the more people are intent on socializing. For Apple, this is careful strategizing. The more eyes, the better. The more direct interaction, the more memorable and compelling it is for the hundreds of attendees that will join onsite at Enderun Extension, the venue partner. PuzzleBox BPO, Inc. and WELLife Corporation also joined in support of the event.
For online attendees, Apple’s own 247 streaming media platform The New Channel (TNC) is the site. Though Global Women Who RULE is a separate entity from The New Channel, both are connected at the hip with GWWR providing opportunities for meaningful partnerships and programs with brands and media.
“We at The New Channel are very proud of our flagship movement Global Women Who RULE. We’re helping GWWR encourage Filipino women to be brave and innovative and we give them a platform to speak up and be heard,” says the prime mover.
This year’s event GWWR Summit on March 25th stages the 3rd of what has been envisioned to be an annual search for amazing profiles to join their growing group targeting 22 new additions to GWWR from more than a hundred nominated profiles. Another first for GWWR 2023 is the hopeful release of the digital version of its PowerBook featuring the 2021 and 2022 profiles of GWWR women leaders.
Shares Apple, “We are so proud to hold GWWR this year. It’s a culmination of a full year’s sweat and toil. We’ve gotten some buzz, but we have the chops to show for it. The topics for each keynote speech are rich and inspiring, and the speakers are the best in their fields and they teach from experience.”
Apple isn’t exaggerating. Among the enlightening talks will be coming from:
