Victoria Lualhati (in photo), president and CEO of Beyond Medical Hub and Trainer of Inspire Leadership Consultancy Inc. will receive the Most Influential Filipina Woman in the World Award from the Filipina Women’s Network at the 16th Filipina Leadership Global Summit on October 28 to November 2 in Paris, France.

The Filipina Women’s Network recognizes women of Philippine ancestry who are changing the face of leadership in the global workplace. Lualhati was selected from among nominees from around the world.

“The Global FWN100 awardees are innovators and thought leaders, dynamic entrepreneurs, rising stars under age 35, practitioners, behind-the-scenes leaders, and public service advocates, who have moved through the ranks in their chosen field. They are magnificent women doing extraordinary work motivating next generation’s leaders,” said Marilyn Mondejar, CEO of Filipina Women’s Network.

“Dr Marivic Lualhati 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 Dr. Carol Enriquez, FWN board member and president and CEO of Our Lady of Fatima University. “The 2007-2019 awardees’ leadership stories have become part of the largest recorded Filipina women diaspora in modern times.”

“The FWNSummit2019 theme is Be Magnificent. Amflifying Filipina Women Voices. Seeing all the global awardees on stage at the awards ceremony assures me that the future of our young Filipina sisters is solid,” said Georgitta Puyat, chairman, Philippine Orchard Corp. and FWN president.

“I thank FWN for bringing the Filipina women of the world together to plan the future for our community and next generation leaders. This award is a validation of the meaningful work that I have been doing for the past years in the arena of healthcare, education and community relations. I’m excited to meet my fellow awardees from other countries, forge partnerships and collaborate with them,” said Lualhati.
