LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, September 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Award-winning filmmaker, actor, and top Hollywood acting coach Giovannie Espiritu to receive the prestigious “Most Influential Filipina Woman in the World” award from the Foundation for Filipina Women’s Network.
The Foundation for Filipina Women’s Network recognizes women of Philippine ancestry who are changing the face of leadership in the global workplace, having reached status for outstanding work in their respective fields and are acknowledged for their contributions to society, femtorship and legacy. Espiritu was selected from an outstanding field of nominees from around the world.
The Innovator and Thought Leader award recognizes women who have broken new ground in the marketplace, have delivered new and unique applications of emerging technology transforming the way people think, in the fields of business, sports, literature, the arts and pop culture, or have improved the lives of others by helping develop a product or service in the fields of finance, science, technology, engineering, fashion, cuisine, architecture, arts, film and entertainment. This award category is also for someone who has launched a new enterprise, a learning function or completely overhauled an existing way of doing things, resulting in new development or community initiative.
“The Global FWN100™ awardees are innovators and thought leaders, dynamic entrepreneurs, rising stars under age 35, practitioners, and public service advocates, who have moved through the ranks in the public and private sectors. They are magnificent women doing extraordinary work trailblazing for the next generation leaders,” said Marily Mondejar, Founder and CEO of the Foundation for Filipina Women’s Network.
“Giovannie Espiritu is now a valued partner in helping FWN develop the Filipina community’s pipeline of qualified leaders to increase the odds that some will rise to the “president” position in all sectors of the global economy,” added Georgitta Puyat, FWN president and Board Chair of the Philippine Orchard Corporation.
“I love that Filipinos are gaining more recognition in different industries. The theme of the 2021 FWN Summit “Be Influential. The Power is Us” is directly in line with the way I believe how powerful storytelling and the film industry can be in shaping society. We influence the collective consciousness. I’m excited to meet my fellow awardees from other countries, learning more about their lives, the partnerships and collaborations we can create. I’m thankful to FWN for bringing the Filipina women of the world together to plan the future for our community and next generation leaders,” says Espiritu.
