In celebration of BDJ’s 10th year, we are continuing our pursuit in empowering more Filipinas by giving them the push to live life to the fullest.
On April 16th, join us and distinguished advocates and changemakers in engaging discussions on current issues faced by women today in the BDJ Women’s Summit: Women Helping Women at Samsung Hall, SM Aura!
Your actions, big or small, matter because YOU ARE THE CHANGE.
The BDJ Women’s Summit will be a day full of highly interactive and experiential learnings. You will meet like-minded women who have the courage to talk about society’s issues—the good and the bad—that women encounter every day. You will also hear success stories, personal social causes, and inspiring initiatives on self-proficiency, anti-intellectualism, legacy-building, and meaningful social impact. This summit will give you a glimpse of what you, as an individual, and we, as a community, can do to inspire and empower women to help themselves and others.
Connect with other women and turn ideas into action from these inspiring talks that you should not miss:
~ Keynote Speech on Women Helping Women w/ MS. AMINA RASUL BERNARDO (Philippine Center for Islam and Democracy & International Women’s Advocate)
~ Igniting Curiosity and Intellectual Discourse w/ MS. RISA HONTIVEROS (2016 Senatorial Candidate & Women’s Advocate) and MS. ANA SANTOS (International award-winning journalist and advocate of women empowerment)
“Bullying has become ubiquitous—in school, at work, online and in numerous other forms. More recently we have observed ‘smart-shaming’ come to the fore. Given our social nature, how do we spark curiosity and boost intellectual freedom for Filipinas?”
~ Working towards Financial Freedom w/ MS. MYRNA PADILLA (Founder, Mynd Consulting, Inc.)
“Based on the 2015 Deloitte survey on millennials, six out of ten millennials would like to pursue entrepreneurship. Four of these six aspiring entrepreneurs are women, and the most common concern is—where do we find enough resources to start?”
~ Finding the Courage to Lead w/ REP. LENI ROBREDO (2016 Vice Presidential Candidate) and MS. MYRZA SISON (Editorial Director, Summit Media)
“The majority of women in this generation strive to be social chameleons, constantly vying for the approval of others all the while struggling with apathy and complacency. There is fear of failure and criticism. How then do we overcome this, recognize our own strength, and find the courage to do something great?”
~ Nurturing Passions to Inspire Good w/ MS. SUSAN AFAN (Managing Director, ABS-CBN Foundation, Inc.) and MS. JEN SANTOS (General Manager, G-Stuff, Eco Social Enterprise)
“In 2014, 2.5 million Filipinos benefited from social enterprises in the country, the majority of which are also women. Yet the increasing number of poor Filipinos is still alarming. As empowered Filipinas, how can we help?”
